A year ago Monday, the largest earthquake to hit the Bay Area since Loma Prieta in 1989, struck at the heart of the Bay Area's wine country. The magnitude 6.0 earthquake centered six miles outside of the city of Napa killed one person, injured more than 200 and caused $300 million in structural damage to homes and businesses. We'll speak with city officials about how Napa is fairing one year later and talk to geologists about the often-overlooked fault that caused the quake.
