4.6 earthquake strikes near Everett in Seattle Washington

SEATTLE — A magnitude 4.6. earthquake hit east of Everett Friday morning, with the shaking felt by thousands of people.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the temblor struck at 2:51 a.m, about 10 miles southeast of Everett. It was about six miles underground. It was followed two minutes later by a 3.5 aftershock.

People on social media noted that they felt the quake, but there were no immediate reports of damage.

Kim Sawyer of Monroe was on the top floor of her building when the shaking started.

“It seemed like it lasted a long time,” Sawyer said. “It didn’t feel like it was going to stop.”
