A drone video is going viral by offering an aerial view of the damage from the 6.0 earthquake that rattled Napa on Aug. 24, created and posted online by Evan Kilkus. (You can watch it below.)

Text at the beginning of the video explains Kilkus’s purpose in using the drone:

This video is intended for educational purposes to show the damage caused to historic and new buildings in Napa.

This video is also intended to show how a quadcopter/drone can be used to help and assess damage. 

The 6.0 earthquake that struck Napa on Sunday resulted in crumbling buildings and shattered wine bottles and barrels that meant a big loss for some California wineries. No lives were lost in the quake but the economic impact has yet to be fully assessed.
