NAPA, CA (CNN) - Inspectors spent much of Sunday determining whether buildings downtown were safe after the strongest earthquake to hit northern California in 25 years struck, injuring more than 170 people. Many buildings were determined unsafe. "There are approximately 33 red tags," Napa Community Development Director Rick Tooker said. "These are red tags because of partial collapse, of materials that are falling off the side of the building or separation of a roof, as an example." The earthquake badly damaged homes, both directly and indirectly, with fires burning and water lines broken. Firefighters had people evacuate but couldn't do much to stop flames from spreading. The Red Cross set up a shelter at Crosswalk Community Church. "We've got a couple people who've lost everything, homes completely burned down, so nothing left but a foundation," Red Cross spokesman Woody Baker-Cohn said. There was quite a sound outside an apartment complex as the earthquake brought a large carport down on vehicles.

ST. LOUIS (RNN) - Michael Brown, the 18-year-old whose death sparked a national conversation about the police's use of deadly force, will be laid to rest on Monday. The funeral will be held at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church and is open to the public, according to KMOV. The church can fit nearly 4,000, and organizers were expecting a large turnout. Civil rights activist Al Sharpton will deliver the eulogy, and representatives from the White House were going to be in attendance. At a rally on Sunday, Michael Brown Sr. requested that Monday be a day of peace, CNN reported. "Tomorrow, all I want is peace while my son is being laid to rest," he said. "Can you please take a day of silence so we can lay our son to rest?"
