PUGET SOUND EARTHQUAKE: Did you feel this one early today?

Thanks to Eric Baer for pointing out that a recent series of earthquakes just across Puget Sound in the Bremerton area continued with another one at 12:35 am today, and some “felt it here” reports came in from West Seattle.

It wasn’t a major quake – but magnitude 3.6 isn’t a microquake, either. If you felt it, geologists would like to hear from you – here’s the link. One day earlier, a magnitude-3.4 quake hit the same area at 1:14 am; you can see the recent series of quakes by zooming in on this map.

P.S. This is just another reminder that we’re in earthquake country, so we’re reminding you about Neighborhood Emergency Communication Hubs – volunteer-organized gathering spots that would be activated if a major quake or other emergency interfered with regular channels of communication. This map shows you the 13 hubs in our area – click the one nearest you to see where it is, and make sure your families and neighbors know about it.

    I have a webcam and checked the video feed in the time around the 3.6 this morning and didn’t observe any “shaking” of either the camera or what the camera was looking at.    Admiral district.

        We (Meadowdale area) felt the 10:56 quake. 3-4 secs., rattled the cupboard contents loudly. Vertical wave polarity, which is how we knew right away it wasn’t a passing train. :)
