A major earthquake hit Napa County on August 24, 2014, shortly after 3AM. Fortunately, the building where the NEWS administrative offices are was structurally unharmed. After a day of cleaning up some broken glass, toppled computers, and books and files tossed about, we are up and running. Our computer server was stuck at 3:17AM, when the earthquake struck, and it took a bit of sleuthing to get it corrected, but everything is working now.
