Skateboarders Turn Damaged Street Into Ramp After California Earthquake

In the wake of the worst earthquake to hit the Bay Area in 25 years, some local skateboarders found a silver lining to an otherwise difficult day in Napa, California.

Early Sunday morning, a 6.0 magnitude quake hit about 6 miles from Napa, leaving 120 injured and thousands without power and water. The quake took a significant toll on some city infrastructure, including Napa's Meadowbook Lane, where the road buckled.

NBC Bay Area's Vicky Nguyen tweeted a photo of how the enterprising skateboarders made the most of the road damage:
