The earthquake was centered about four miles south of Napa in the Steamboat Slough area, which is Iocat- ed along the margin of San Pablo Bay.

Here, surface soils are pre- dominantly soft bay muds that tend to amplify the earthquake waves and cause a greater amount of lateral and vertical motion. Numerous residential and com- mercial buildings in Napa Valley showed effects, like being jarred from their foun- dations, the interior contents violently tossed about, facades wrenched from the structures, and much window damage. Fortunately, no fatalities were reported, however, there were many injuries and frayed nerves. A small, widely scttered - aftershock sequence followed.
