An early Friday morning quake that struck Washington State was felt on Vancouver Island, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).
Exactly one week after 3 significant earthquakes hit the BC coast, a 4.6 magnitude quake struck near Seattle, WA early Friday.
The area is about 30 miles northeast of Seattle.
The quake was relatively shallow, but according to the USGS map, it was felt all the way to the Canadian border.
Authorities have not issued any tsunami warnings or advisories, and no serious injuries or damage has been reported yet.
The state Department of Transportation sent crews out to inspect bridges but no damage was found by Friday afternoon. A handful of smaller aftershocks followed, according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. It was the largest in Southern California since the 1994 magnitude 6.6 Northridge quake. Thrust faults are common in the Cascade Range, Caruso said.
She said scientists were working Friday morning to better quantify those chances.
