Quake Rattles South Sound Area

The U.S. Geological Survey said a magnitude-4.2 earthquake struck Western Washington early morning, and residents in the Puget Sound region reported feeling it as far away as Seattle.

Director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, John Vidale, shared that the quake happened at 7:51 A.M. and was centered at about 3 miles northeast of Mossyrock, WA

Residents calling the KOMO News reported that the quake was felt in Lakewood, Port Orchard, Centralia, Eatonville and Chehalis, among other areas.

"It's a sizable shaker. We're getting 'felt reports' all the way from into Oregon up to past Seattle, so a wide area," Vidale said.

Officials with the Lewis County sheriff's office stated there were no accounts of damage or injuries.
