3.2 earthquake hits near Snoqualmie, following a smaller quake

There are no reports of any injuries or damages.

A magnitude 3.2 earthquake struck near the town of Snoqualmie at 7:38 a.m. Saturday.

The earthquake was 4.46 miles away from Fall City, Washington, and 24.61 miles from Seattle, according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN). The quake was at a depth of 10.38 miles. 

There are no reports of damage or injuries. Krystyna Smith and Michelle Gray live in Fall City and said they both felt the quake Saturday morning.

“I was thinking, is that a truck driving by rumbling the house, or is it another earthquake?” said Gray.

PNSN said they are looking to see if the magnitude 3.2 earthquake is connected to the Seattle Fault, which runs east to west roughly along I-90.

A magnitude 2.3 earthquake was also reported Saturday at 4:12 a.m. in roughly the same area, PNSN reported. That quake was at a depth of 10.25 miles.

“Every time I do feel a little tremor, there is that feeling of almost wanting to hold my breath for a moment. Do I need to go run, is this just a little passing, or should I go duck for cover right away?”
