ROYAL CITY, Wash. — A 2.5 magnitude earthquake shook near Royal City on Friday morning shortly after a larger earthquake rocked much of western Washington.
A KREM viewer called on Friday morning to report that he felt the small earthquake in Royal City, located in Grant County.
“Told my husband, I think that was an earthquake? Thought I was crazy!” one viewer wrote on the KREM Facebook page.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the temblor struck about seven miles southwest of Royal City at 3:46 a.m. on Friday. It was about two miles deep.
USGS has not yet received any reports from residents who felt the quake.
Earthquakes between 2.5 and 5.4 magnitude are often felt but only cause minor damage.
A magnitude 4.6 earthquake hit near Monroe, Washington, on Friday morning, with the shaking felt by thousands of people.
The earthquake was followed by a series of aftershocks, including a 3.5 earthquake two minutes after the initial quake.
USGS said it also received reports of people feeling the shaking near Wenatchee.
