The Governor of California's Office has been working with emergency services after a powerful earthquake hit Napa city in the San Francisco Bay area, he said in a statement. Jerry Brown added:
My Office of Emergency Services has been on full activation since early this morning and is working closely with state and local emergency managers, first responders and transportation officials to respond to impacts to residents and critical infrastructure.
These public safety officials are doing all they can to help residents and those living in affected areas should follow their guidance and instruction.
