Overnight Earthquake Hits Puget Sound
A 4.0 magnitude earthquake rattled the Puget Sound early Wednesday.
The earthquake was centered near the town of Seabeck in Kitsap County, about 40 miles west of Seattle. The shaking was felt as far away as Everett, Olympia and downtown Seattle.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the earthquake began shaking around 3 a.m. and had a depth of 11 miles.
The Kitsap County emergency dispatch did not receive any reports of damage or injuries.
Posts on social media suggest the shaking woke people up and frightened animals.
