6.1 Earthquake Delays Caltrain Service, ACE Cancels Service To 49ers Game

Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor train service has been temporarily suspended and Caltrain service is likely to be delayed this morning while the rail systems inspect their tracks following the 6.1-magnitude earthquake that struck southern Napa County.

The earthquake hit around 3:20 a.m., three miles northwest of American Canyon, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.

Caltrain service has started operating out of San Jose, and rail officials report that all bridge structures between San Francisco and Redwood City have been cleared for operation.

ACE special train service between Stockton and San Jose for this afternoon’s San Francisco 49ers football game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara has also been canceled because of safety concerns following the quake.

However, Caltrain will still provide special service to the second 49ers pre-season game today at the new Levi’s Stadium.

BART had pre-planned delays because of track maintenance on its Pittsburg-Bay Point line but has not reported any other disruptions this morning as a result of the quake.

    This is a clear reminder that there always is the BIG ONE just around the corner and we don’t know when or where it is going to strike!!

    We have to be prepared and make sure to keep an earthquake kit in our home, car, and office. Water, Food, Good Shoes, and several hundred dollars cash are essential .

    I put together my own kit years ago that I update once a year, throwing out expired items. If you don’t want to build a kit yourself, I recommend checking out this company Preppi. They make awesome earthquake kits that look as good as they are functional with everything you need for 72-hours after a quake! http://www.preppi.co
