A magnitude 6.0 earthquake rocked the San Francisco Bay Area early Sunday morning, centered in the Napa County town of American Canyon, but felt across Northern California. The quake, the strongest in the region since 1989, prompted Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency Sunday.
Napa Valley towns and communities have reported the worst damage, reports CBS San Francisco. Dozens of aftershocks in the area have been reported since the large tremor struck overnight.
There have been dozens of reported injuries, at least two of them serious, including one child who was left in critical condition by falling debris.
One hospital in the Bay Area reports it has treated at least 120 patients so far injured by the quake.
