The Pierce County sheriff’s office says there are no reports of damage from a 3.6 magnitude earthquake that shook the Gig Harbor area.
Spokesman Ed Troyer says dispatchers had a half-dozen calls from people who felt it.
The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network recorded the quake at 11:41 a.m. Tuesday. It was shallow — just 3 miles deep — and centered 13 miles south of Port Orchard and 23 miles north of Olympia.
The seismic network website indicated the quake was felt on the Key Peninsula, parts of Kitsap County and in the Olympia area.
