Winters was all shook up


Local residents awakened by earthquake on
festival weekend

By DEBRA DeANGELO

The irony was lost on no one that Winters began last weekend with its annual Earthquake Street Festival, and ended it with shock waves from an earthquake in the American Canyon area early Sunday morning. According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) website, the 6.0 magnitude earthquake occurred on Sunday, Aug. 24, at 3:20 a.m. just west of the West Napa fault between the longer Rodgers Creek fault on the west and the Concord-Green Valley Fault to the east.
USGS notes that this was the largest earthquake to strike the Bay Area since the 6.9 magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. Dubbed the South Napa earthquake, the shaking caused significant damage in south Napa County, with chunks of bricks falling from many historic buildings in downtown Napa. . . .

On Saturday, Aug. 23, the Warriors traveled to Ponderosa High School to compete against Ponderosa, Rosemont and River Valley High Schools.
“We wanted to get out of our comfort zone,” said coach Daniel Ward. “We definitely accomplished that. The schools we faced were much larger in numbers and size but we battled against everyone of them and did it with that old Warrior attitude. . . .
