Several homeowners in Warrenton reported on the KGW Facebook page that their houses shook.

"Yes I sure did! Being a California native I was a bit" shocked" to feel one here," KGW customer Kirsten Jensen said via Facebook. "I've survived some HUGE quakes. This wasn't too crazy but just enough to shake the house real good and then fade away."

A number of people told the Daily Astorian via Facebook that they felt the quake, one reporting windows rattling in the community of Knappa In Svensen, a person reported the couch jumping and dishes rattling for three to four seconds.
