Two earthquakes shook the Puget Sound region in Washington state early Friday morning, with the temblors felt into British Columbia and across the Cascade Mountains into the eastern part of the state.

The natural disaster occurred near Three Lakes, Washington at 2:51 a.m. local time.

A magnitude-4.6 natural disaster that struck outside Seattle has reportedly been felt as far north as the Vancouver area.

No significant damages or injuries were reported to city infrastructure, according to Tacoma and Pierce County officials. The USGS said it received reports of people feeling the shaking from Vancouver to near Wenatchee, Washington. The natural disaster was followed by a 3.5 aftershock.


KIRO reports the quake is the largest to hit the region since the 6.8 M 2001 Nisqually natural disaster.

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

There isn't a connection between this quake and the ones that rocked California earlier this month, Steele said.
