M6.0 Northern California earthquake triggers state of emergency Updated: 2014-08-25 04:47:24 KST

A magnitude 6.0 earthquake has rattled Northern California damaging historic buildings and injuring more than a hundred people in the state's wine country.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit around 3:20 Sunday morning, local time with an epicenter just less than 10 kilometers south-southwest of Napa.
The strongest earthquake the region had seen in a quarter-century triggered a state of emergency by California Governor Jerry Brown. Dozens of aftershocks were also recorded.
Officials at a Napa hospital said it treated at least 1-hundred-20 injured people. Among those critically hurt was a young child when a fireplace had crumbled near him; he was airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center.
