WORLD / U.S. – The 6.0-magnitude earthquake in the early hours of Sunday morning have led California Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for the counties of Napa, Solano and Sonoma.

While no deaths have been reported, three have been reported to be critically injured, including a child who was hurt by a fallen fireplace. The quake is the largest in 25 years to hit California’s wine country, causing fires, huge damages to property, water pipes and power supply. FOX News covers the earthquake in the video below:

For the safety of its students, all Napa Valley Unified School District schools are closed on Monday as officials assess the damage to their buildings. The Sonoma State University, however, remains open. University officials state the quake did not damage the campus facilities.

Officials will make an announcement later today on whether schools will begin tomorrow.
