    NBC Bay Area's Mark Matthews shows why geologists are examinig Tuscany Court in Napa, where nearly all homes sustained damage from Sunday's earthquake.

    Nearly every home on a small street in west Napa sustained damage from Sunday's earthquake.

    State geologists spent Wednesday examining the damage at Tuscany Court, which sits on a hill in Napa's Browns Valley neighborhood.

    "The whole front of the house has to come down," said Randy Brown, whose home was damaged by the quake. "It's tough, it's tough -- we'll figure it out."

    Brown first noticed a gap on the street in front of his home. He followed the gap into his garage, around to the side yard and noticed his house moved -- in some areas a couple of inches -- during the temblor.

    Brown and his neighbors are hoping the federal government will provide assistance to repair their homes.

    "Absorbing the cost of $100,000 to $200,000 to fix something . . . I don't know where it's coming from you know," he said.
