Dr. Hudnut reports that surface fault ruptures may be prone to erosion along fractures. As water from heavy rains enters cracks formed by the earthquake, these cracks can enlarge and lead to formation of visible fissures.

With the City of Napa's new residential food composting program, tons of waste is being diverted from the landfills - and it's easy. The brown cart that you already have is not just for yardwaste anymore. You can also use the brown cart for all kinds of food scraps - fruits, vegetables, seafood, shellfish, meat, poultry, bones, fats, grease, rice, beans, pasta, bread, dairy, eggshells, and all prepared and cooked foods. You can also dispose of food-soiled paper products like paper towels, napkins, tissue, paper cups and plates, coffee grounds, filters, tea bags, waxed paper, waxed carbdoard and butcher paper. Please do NOT use your brown cart for plastic bags, wrap or straws, styrofoam, glass, metal, aluminum foil or foil-lined wrap, non-compostable wipes, diapers, hazardous waste, liquids, or pet waste. For detailed information on the program, including helpful tips and a full listing of accepted items, please visit naparecycling.com/residential-food-composting.
