    Napa earthquake


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Freelance photographer FranciscoLozano said the magnitude of the damage he witnessed in Napa, California on Sunday was not as big as ones he had seen in Los Angeles. 'Local police were very cooperative with the media, business owners are resilient to get back to bussines, tourists are still coming in. I'm staying at The Meritage resort where there were no structural damages and they were functioning normal as of yesterday. Employees worked extra long hours since very early in the morning to keep it running smoothly.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer
