Did you feel it? That was the popular question Friday morning as residents around Western Washington awoke to news that a 4.6-magnitude earthquake rattled near Puget Sound and Seattle just before 3 a.m.
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake was recorded at 2:51 a.m. at Three Lakes, Wash., in Snohomish County. An aftershock measuring 3.5 was measured minutes later in Monroe, Wash.
The area is about 30 miles northeast of Seattle.
“We were sound asleep and the whole house shook and we all woke up. We are spooked and still awake,” Rob Fuhriman told KIRO TV.
Twitter also came alive in the middle of the night, as those who were already awake or were awakened by the shaking shared their experiences. A USGS intensity map tracked how far away the earthquake could be felt.
Earthquake! Clearly, it woke us up. Did you feel it?
