SOLANO COUNTY (CBS13) — The Solano County Board of Supervisors has declared a state of emergency after Sunday’s magnitude-6.0 earthquake hit the region.

The board passed the resolution on Tuesday after nearly $1 million in damage to county facilities had been tallied, and more than 70 private buildings have been damaged in Vallejo.

The move allows the county’s auditor-controller to prepare and process possible reimbursement paperwork for county resources. It also calls for a partial activation of the county’s emergency response team.
