Quake Rattles South Sound Area

MOSSYROCK, Wash. -- A magnitude 4.2 earthquake rattled many residents in the south Puget Sound area early Tuesday morning.

John Vidale, Director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, said the quake happened at 7:51 a.m. and was centered about 3 miles northeast of Mossyrock, Wash.

Residents calling the KOMO newsroom reported feeling the quake in Lakewood, Port Orchard, Centralia, Eatonville and Chehalis, among other areas.

"It's a sizable shaker. We're getting 'felt reports' all the way from into Oregon up to past Seattle, so a wide area," Vidale said.

Officials with the Lewis County sheriff's office said there were no reports of damage or injuries.
