This morning’s earthquake has been upgraded to a 4.2 magnitude, according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.
The quake, centered about three miles northeast of Mossyrock, was recorded at 7:51 a.m. It was first logged as a 3.5 magnitude quake, then upgraded to a 3.9. A seismologist has now reviewed the quake and upgraded it to a 4.2.
We’ve received a handful of reports this morning of people who felt the ground shake. The reports have come in from Centralia to Olympia to the North End. There have been no reports of major damage.
Some staffers at Mount Rainier National Park reported hearing the rumble of the earthquake before feeling it, said park spokeswoman Donna Rahier. “It was this low rumble, and then they felt the shaking,” she said.
Here’s a link to a seismograph recording of the quake.
UPDATE: The Mossyrock quake was actually the second of the morning in Western Washington.
A 1.9 magnitude quake was recorded just after 5:30 a.m. near Langley.
