Seattle may be closer to Canada after morning quake

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

That was the popular question Friday morning as residents around Western Washington awoke to news that a 4.6-magnitude quake rattled near Puget Sound and Seattle just before 3 a.m.

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.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. Numerous viewers reported feeling the quake.

The quake hit at about 2:52 a.m.

The area is about 30 miles northeast of Seattle. The agency stated that it was 3.1 kilometers down.

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

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