A public meeting on the South Napa Earthquake will be held Monday, January 12, 2015 at 6:00 pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 955 School Street. The purpose of the meeting is to review the quake reports issued by the Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance Association (GEER) and the United States Geological Survey. The South Napa Earthquake created a unusually well-defined surface rupture that produced damage to structures and infrastructure both within the immediate vicinity of the fault zone and throughout the community. A subsequent investigative effort included, but was not limited to, documenting seismology and ground motions of the event, mapping the surface fault rupture and fault traces, and recording infrastructural damage. Key observations of surface fault rupture were made, both in the field and using various remote sensing methods, and forecasting afterslip focused mostly in Browns Valley area, as well as assessing the shaking uniformity in downtown Napa where many buildings were also significantly damaged.
