Quake rattles Seattle area

An natural disaster that rattled the Seattle area early Friday morning was felt in Metro Vancouver and in the Fraser Valley.

The quake occurred near Three Lakes, Washington at 2:51 a.m. local time. It came days after a swarm of more than two dozen small earthquakes shook under Mount Hood.

Shocking footage of those earthquakes showed food falling from the shelves of grocery stores and waves sloshing in residents' swimming pools.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Surveillance video obtained by CBS affiliate KIRO-TV showed the moment the quake hit Everett, Washington. "We are spooked and still awake", Rob Fuhriman told KIRO TV.

The Northwest is especially prone to earthquakes. The agency stated that it was 3.1 kilometers down. The USGS said it received reports of people feeling the shaking from Vancouver to near Wenatchee, Washington. The natural disaster was felt around the sound from Arlington to Seattle and as far as Bremerton, CBS affiliate KIRO-TV reported.

The Seattle quake occurred the same day as a 4.9 magnitude natural disaster was measured in southern California.

Caruso said the natural disaster was the product of a thrust fault, in which one side of a fault pushes upward in relation to its opposite side.

There isn't a connection between this natural disaster and the ones that rocked California earlier this month, Steele said.
