“It’s been widely felt throughout the Seattle area,” said Paul Caruso, a USGS geophysicist.
The shaking emanated from Three Lakes, Snohomish County, about nine miles east of downtown Everett. The earthquake was relatively shallow, and originated about 14 miles beneath the surface, according to a USGS map.
There were no immediate reports of damage in Snohomish County, according to a tweet from the Sheriff’s Office. Police in nearby Lake Stevens reported no damage to city infrastructure. 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.
