Been kind of a crazy week
Flying carpets

I missed out on the fun

Didn’t feel a thing around 05:25 here in Redmond.

If I had been working my normal 06:00-15:00 schedule today, I might’ve wondered what was going on as I wobbled around the shower.

Seattle Times story after the jump.

Seattle Times: No reports of damage as 4.6 quake rattles Seattle

There are no immediate reports of damage from a 4.6 magnitude earthquake that rattled the Seattle and Puget Sound area at 5:25 a.m. today.

But it woke a lot of people up.

The U.S. Geological Survey says it was centered 16 miles northwest of Seattle near Kingston, in Kitsap County. The preliminary magnitude could be revised.

The shaking woke up Robert Lyden on Anderson Island in Puget Sound.

“It shook the house like something had hit the roof,” he said. “It just woke us up.” Other than knocking a water fountain off his deck there was no damage.

Lacey Menne says it shook her home as she was preparing to go to work at the Coastal Cafe in Kingston.

“It wasn’t strong enough to make anything fall,” she said. “It was like, what is that? I think it might be an earthquake. It’s totally an earthquake!”

James Baird, who lives in Jefferson County near the border with Kitsap County, said he was drying clothes when he felt movement and said “Hey, this doesn’t feel like my dryer shaking ... It was definitely an earthquake.”

Seattle radio and TV stations report callers around the Puget Sound area felt the shaking for 10 or 15 seconds.
