I went downtown today, needed to replace a strainer that broke and took a few pictures along the way.
|Relatively new hotel, red tagged.|
|Post Office, closed.|
I did not get a picture of the little house just a block North of the church that was completely rocked off its foundation, leaning off to one side.
There is much, much more damage, but I only took pictures of the damage along the way, didn't go out of my way to find more. The rough estimate for damages is $300 million and that is only for private homes, does not include damage to businesses or financial losses. Over 100 structures are red-tagged, over 200 people ended up in either the hospital or the ER, one of those a heart attack, the other very serious one a teenager - a brick fireplace fell on his pelvis. He has successful surgery and is expected to fully recover - in time.
If anybody feels they would like to help, the Red Cross is an obvious choice. My favorite local charity, though, is the Napa Valley Food Bank. The address on their website is wrong, they have just moved here: 1766 Industrial Way, Napa, CA 94558.
