M 6.0 South Napa Earthquake – How you can help!

Our thoughts go out to our North Bay members affected by the South Napa earthquake that occurred early Sunday morning.

We encourage our membership to participate in the activities of the California Earthquake Clearinghouse.  Your field observations, as subject matter experts, are appreciated.  If you are currently conducting field reconnaissance in the area, please consider sharing your notes with the Clearinghouse community.  It’s easy, and can be done directly from your computer or smart phone.  A virtual clearinghouse has been established for this earthquake at http://www.californiaeqclearinghouse.org/m6-0-south-napa-earthquake/  Methods for transmittal of information as well as instructions can be found at the virtual clearinghouse website.

Additionally, EERI is coordinating volunteer reconnaissance activities within Napa.  If you would like to assist EERI’s field activities, contact Heidi Tremayne: heidi@eeri.org and Maggie Ortiz: maggie@eeri.org
