4.6 quake shakes Seattle region overnight

"It's kind of a compressive quake that allows shortening between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C".

The first temblor was a 4.6 magnitude that struck at 2:51 a.m.

The state of Washington was rocked Friday morning with a 4.6 magnitude quake Friday morning, the Associated Press reports.

The area is about 30 miles northeast of Seattle. The natural disaster was relatively shallow, originating about 14 miles beneath the surface, according to a USGS map. There were no immediate reports of damage in either event.

The new device is being built by Amazon's research and development arm Lab126, and it apparently features at least four tweeters. Sources familiar with the product tell Bloomberg's Mark Gurman that Amazon is planning to launch its high-end Echo by 2020.


The state Department of Transportation said the agency would be inspecting bridges, but had no reports of damage.

The Monroe earthquakes had one at a magnitude 4.6 while the aftershock was at magnitude 3.5. The USGS said it received reports of people feeling the shaking from Vancouver to near Wenatchee, Washington.

Initial USGS reports had described the larger trembling as a magnitude 4.4 natural disaster that began less deep in the earth's surface.

Caruso said the Northwest quake had no connection to the recent earthquakes in California.
