Magnitude 4.6 natural disaster shakes Seattle

A 4.6 magnitude natural disaster rumbled from near Monroe early Friday morning, shaking buildings to the southwest around Seattle while most of Capitol Hill slept through the ride.

That was followed minutes later by a 3.5 magnitude aftershock near the city of Monroe, some 30 miles northeast of Seattle.

Edmonds Police Department spokesman Shane Hawley said the police department received no calls related to the natural disaster. There were no early reports of injuries and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said there was no tsunami risk. "That woke me from my sleep..."

The epicenter of the quake was near Monroe in Snohomish County.

The state Department of Transportation sent crews out to inspect bridges but no damage was found by Friday afternoon.

Friday's quake is "more related to California kind of being dragged north and pressing us up against the buttress of British Columbia", Steele told KUOW's Angela King.
