Monday was the one-year anniversary of the magnitude-6.0 earthquake that caused millions of dollars in damage and injured hundreds of people in California wine country. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake struck at 3:20 a.m. about three miles northwest of American Canyon. The South Napa Earthquake was the largest temblor to hit the Bay Area since the magnitude-6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989 on the San Andreas Fault.
