The quake was widespread in Santa Rosa, Calistoga, and St. Helena, but not large enough to cause damage.
Cat going a little crazy this morning after the little 3.1 earthquake, Santa Rosa. I didn’t even feel it. When you watch, the dog raises its head and is not amused. I wonder how cats are most likely to get away with things. The pandemic drove everything crazy, right ?! # Earthquake #California #SantaRosa pic.twitter.com/pxKDy6cNyb
