The worst earthquake since 1989 hits Northern California including San Francisco.

Northern California woke up by a 6.0-magnitude Earthquake Sunday morning. The city of Napa seems to have been hit the worst with at least 90 injured in Napa. Buildings got damaged and there have been fires. So far nobody has died. Today's earthquake is the worst since 1989, but is not the feared big one.

The earthquake occurred 3.71mi WSW of American Canyon according to USGS.

California governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency for Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties. Watch a USA Today report from Napa.
