By Nathan Salant     Sep 25, 2014 in Environment
Napa - Survivors of last month's 6.0 South Napa earthquake are invited Thursday to two free recovery workshops on First Street in downtown Napa.
The workshops, sponsored by the Napa Local Assistance Center, will address survivors' mental health issues and available government help for small business owners who suffered damage.
There is no cost to attend either or both presentations, according to the Napa Valley Register newspaper.
There are no pre-registration requirements for either workshop.
Workshops at the center, at 301 First St., are part of the city and county's efforts to recover from the 6.0 quake, which killed one person and injured 120 when it struck in the early morning of Aug. 24.
Dozens of buildings were damaged in Napa and surrounding communities, some irreparably, including in Vallejo in nearby Solano County.
Many wineries in Napa and Sonoma counties reported substantial damage to facilities and inventories, including Cornerstone Cellars in Napa, Dahl Vineyards in Yountville and B.R. Cohn Winery in Glen Ellen.
The first workshop Thursday, 'Tips for Survivor of Traumatic Events," begins at 12:30 p.m.
The small business workshop, "Napa-Sonoma Business Development Center Business Assistance," begins at 5:30 p.m.
More information about the workshop and about other programs being offered by the center is available on the website napaquakeinfo.com or by callling (707) 258-7829.
