Small quakes under Hood Canal called ‘routine’

The Associated Press

SEABECK, Kitsap County — The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network director says small quakes recorded overnight under the Hood Canal near Seabeck are routine.

Director John Vidale says they follow a trend of small quakes in the area and are “nothing to get alarmed about.”

He says it was a bit unusual for a 3.4 magnitude quake at 11:55 p.m. Thursday to be followed by several aftershocks.

There was a 1.3 magnitude quake at 12:33 a.m. Friday in the same area about 10 miles west of Pousbo. And there was a 2.8 magnitude quake in the same general location at 4:57 a.m. Friday. The quakes were at a depth of 11 miles.

Dispatchers with the Kitsap and Jefferson county sheriff’s offices say they received no reports the quakes were even felt.
