Those barrels in the second photo? Just fine, a bit shaken it appears.

A forklift and a couple of cellar rats and they will be fine.
And from the photos I've seen most of the bottles are unbroken. Shaken, but not damaged beyond drinkability.
I'm not saying that there wasn't a lot of damage, my friends in the area are saying that a lot of bad stuff happened and lots of stuff is broken or badly damaged.
/Thankful that very few people were seriously hurt.

It's actually a really interesting article, with a lot of Baby's First Explanation of Tectonic Plates and a little more detail about the local faults.

I grew up in the deep South, where the only earthquake we ever had to worry about was the New Madrid finally going off -- and if the New Madrid finally goes off, literally everybody is farked and there's no point in knowing what table to dive under or whatever.

I was actually astounded at getting to read an in-depth, informative article on i09 with nary a listicle, quiz or poll to be found anywhere.

Is he regular foot transferring from the ripple in the background to the foreground or a goofy foot doing a backside 180 from the bump over the crack?

Northern California should be ashamed at the damage. It is as if they have learned nothing since... forever. Those wine barrels should never have been broken from anythimg less than a monster quake. Shameful.

/CA for life.
