South Napa Earthquake Information - August 24, 2014

As you are aware, on August 24, 2014 at 10:22 UTC, Northern California experienced a 6.0 magnitude earthquake this was the largest earthquake in the Bay Area since the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.  The epicenter of what is being called the South Napa earthquake had its epicenter 6 km NM of American Canyon, California - approximately 50 km from San Francisco.

In response to this recent earthquake and its possible effects on SmartNet, we have deployed all necessary resources to verify whether there has been any movement and/or subsidence in any of the reference stations. The SmartNet Team is currently engaged in conducting this verification. As with any earthquake one has to be aware of aftershocks, therefore we ask for your patience as we perform the necessary network adjustment calculations to verify each stations coordinate values.

We strongly recommend that all users implement good field practices and field quality control checks to ensure confidence in data being collected.  Once we have completed all our checks on the network, we will communicate our findings immediately.

Should you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact your local SmartNet representative or email the SmartNet Team at

Thank you,

SmartNet North America
