The Napa County Sheriff's Office is reporting the first—and so far only—death to have been linked to the Napa Quake on August 24th.
A 65-year old woman named Laurie Anne Thompson, a resident of Napa, was struck on the head by a falling television and died last Friday. She went to the hospital the day after the quake, after feeling dizzy and suffering a decline in mental function. The quake caused dozens of other injuries, including those to a 13-year old boy whose pelvis was shattered after a chimney collapsed on him as he was sleeping.
According to a recent forecast by the US Geological Survey, the quake caused over $1 billion in damages to the North Bay. Napa's wineries were hit with losses around $80 million.
