UPDATED, 11:20 a.m. | The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network now reports that the earthquake was a 2.8 magnitude quake.

ORIGINAL POST | A mild earthquake shook the Eastside this morning about 9:37. With a 2.7 magnitude, the quake was centered in Redmond just north of Marymoor Park, said Doug Gibbons, research assistant at the University of Washington’s Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.

He said the quake was about 11 miles deep and widely felt on the Eastside. By 10 a.m., he said, more than 90 people had logged onto the network’s “Did you feel it?” page on their website.

No responses were logged from Seattle or Everett, he said, though the first came in from the Shoreline area.
