Magnitude-4.6 earthquake hits Seattle area, felt as far as Vancouver

The Seattle Skyline and Mount Rainier

Less than an hour after Monroe felt two earthquakes, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, a magnitude 2.5 natural disaster occurred near Royal City at around 3:45 a.m. on July 12.

The United States Geological Survey reports a 4.6 magnitude quake hit the Seattle area.

Surveillance video obtained by CBS affiliate KIRO-TV showed the moment the natural disaster hit Everett, Washington.

The Northwest is especially prone to earthquakes. The Washington State Department of Transportation said in a tweet that the agency would be inspecting bridges Friday morning, but had no reports of damage.

Joan Gomberg, a USGS seismologist and affiliate faculty member at the University of Washington, said "the likelihood of a bigger one is small".

Exactly one week after 3 significant earthquakes hit the BC coast, a 4.6 magnitude quake struck near Seattle, WA early Friday. That quake caused some injuries and widespread damage, including to the air traffic control tower at Sea-Tac Airport.

A flurry of seismic activity in Snohomish County has people on edge after two earthquakes, magnitudes 4.6 and 3.5, shook the area. Thrust faults are common in the Cascade Range, Caruso said.
