4.6 quake rattles Seattle region in the middle of the night

4.6 quake rattles Seattle region in the middle of the night

The quake measured 4.6 on the Richter magnitude scale and originated just north of Seattle in the Three Lakes region at 2:51 a.m.

No tsunami warning was issued after the quake, according to a tweet from the US National Tsunami Warning Center.

"Indeed it was not a very big natural disaster, but it was large enough that shaking could be felt in the Greater Vancouver area".

That was followed minutes later by a 3.5 magnitude aftershock near the city of Monroe, some 30 miles northeast of Seattle.

Simona Halep beats Serena Williams for Wimbledon title
Preying on the leaden-footed American, Halep ripped through Williams' defences with a devastating blend of mobility and precision. The Romanian had lost her first three grand slam finals but, since teaming up with Darren Cahill, she is a reformed competitor.

Also Friday, there was a 4.9-magnitude natural disaster in Ridgecrest, CA., and a small 2.5-magnitude quake in Mexico City.

There were no immediate reports of damage in Snohomish County, according to a tweet from the Sheriff's Office.

Initial USGS reports had described the larger trembling as a magnitude 4.4 natural disaster that began less deep in the earth's surface.

The Seattle quake occurred the same day as a 4.9 magnitude natural disaster was measured in southern California.
