PORT ANGELES — Anybody feel an earthquake in the wee hours Friday?
Two earthquakes shook the Puget Sound region with the temblors felt into British Columbia and across the Cascade Mountains into the eastern part of the state.
There are so far no reports of damage or injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a 4.6 magnitude earthquake rattled the Three Lakes area, about 20 miles southeast of Everett, at 2:51 am. That was followed minutes later by a 3.5 magnitude aftershock near Monroe, about 20 miles south of the first quake.
The USGS said it received reports of people feeling the shaking from Vancouver to Wenatchee.
There have been thousands of aftershocks of the magnitude 6.4 earthquake on July 4 in California and the 7.1 quake that occurred the next day, but David Caruso, a USGS geophysicist said Friday morning’s Northwest quake had no connection to those California quakes.
