4.6 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes in Seattle Area

The tremor, which hit the Three Lakes area of Washington State, less than 20 km from Everett, was measured at magnitude-4.6 around 2:51 am today.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey there was no tsunami risk.

Joan Gomberg, a USGS seismologist and affiliate faculty member at the University of Washington, said "the likelihood of a bigger one is small".

He did not expect any damage in Metro Vancouver given the size of the quake and the province's modern seismic building codes. "I felt that quake all the way on Vancouver Island!"
