Assessing Napa's Damage

24 has caused at least $300 million in structural damage, officials said on Wednesday. 

On today's North Bay Report we follow structural engineers from Simpson Strong-Tie as they asses some of the damages to buildings in downtown Napa.  Nearly 120 buildings have been red-tagged, deemed unsafe to enter. See a map of red- and yellow-tagged buildings here. Yellow-tagged buildings are not safe to occupy until repairs have been made. The city of Napa has waived inspection and permit fees for those suffering from earthquake damage.
