      A Northern California earthquake measuring 6.0 on the Richter scale has resulted in at least 90 injuries.

      The earthquake occurred at 3:20 a.m. about nine kilometres southwest of Napa in the San Francisco Bay Area. Napa has about 77,000 residents.

      CNN has reported that at least three of the injured are in critical condition.

      At least six major fires were caused by the earthquake, which occurred along California's San Andreas Fault. That's where the North American and Pacific plates come together.

      CNN has also reported more than 100 gas leaks and downed power lines in the city of Napa.

      According to CNN alright! We make this crap up ALL the time when ratings get low. If you look REAL close you will notice that it's stock footage from previous quakes.

      Are You Ready For The BIG ONE ? HA HA

      Here We Go Again, Are We Ready For The BIG one? Give Me A Break - LOL. As To When This Earthquake Happened It Was In The Early MORNING When Most People Were Still Sleeping. Did They Remember To Grab Their So Called Survival Gear,{NOT Likely},As The First Thing ON PEOPLE'S Minds Is When You Are Awakened In The Middle Of The Night And Are Half A Sleep Is To Get Clear Of Your Living Space { Apartment,House ETC,} And Out In The Open.

      The Media Sure Likes To Hype It Up { Are They Ready - LOL.} The Media Sure Likes To Go ON And On And On About The Big One As If They Have Nothing Better To Do.

      OH Well That's My Take On The BIG ONE.
