Sunday night, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck a remote part of Peru. Earlier that day a 6.0 shook the vineyards and homes of Napa, Calif., sending over 100 people to the hospital. The California earthquake was the worst to hit that state since 1989, when a massive quake broke the Bay Bridge and killed 63 people.
