  • Woodinville - Light shaking
  • University Place - Felt a drop and heard a thump around 245am. Turned light on balcony to see if my rude neighbor threw something large on my balcony. Nothing there (this time) so thought maybe a seahawk/osprey flew into sliding glass door. I asked housemate, who was playing video games at the time, said he neither heard or felt anything. Saw news later about Monroe WA earthquake. Makes total sense now since have been in many earthquakes/aftershocks in California. Scary. Hate 'em
  • Redmond - Strong shaking
  • Tacoma - Around 3:00 am WDT, Had felt a stronger jolt earlier before 11:00 pm WDT, not sure of cause of first jolt. First jolt felt/sounded like 2 loaded semi=trucks colliding at 70 mph, (a "bam!" of an explosion same time as ground heave) just up the hill from me to the east. No sirens ensued after event so not a vehicle crash. Definitely not fireworks or firearms, more like cannon but JBLM to the south. Might have been a very localized pre-shock? IDK.

  • Seattle - I don't have an accurate amount of time to relate. The shaking woke me and lasted long enough for me to register that there was movement. Once I recognized that I wasn't dreaming, I got up to look outside but I didn't feel any additional movement or notice any outside.
  • redmond - one strong lurch
  • Lynnwood - It felt like something hit the bottom of our mobile home really hard there was a loud Crack almost sounded like the place being ripped apart, after the Crack didn't really notice any shaking I was a bit freaked out so I would have to say it lasted 10-20 seconds
  • Carnation - I was almost asleep at the time but I heard it coming for about a second before it hit. It sounded like a low rumbling coming from the west but I suppose it must have been from the north. The shaking only lasted about a second or two, and a few things rattled but nothing fell or broke.

  • Moses Lake - Felt the building sway...
  • Washington State - It was in 2 intervals. The first shaking woke me up at 1240am then another shaking shortly after that. Listen, you can make me do all the exams you want, threaten my survival and comfortable lifestyle Iearned and enjoyed but I can make you ill, cause more earthquakes and hurricanes, electrocute you and much more. You can not beat me. All evil against the innocent will perish.

  • Sequim, WA - I was awoken by a moderate jult about 3:09am, 4.1. No more than a second. I was not sure if it was the cat jumping down or an earthquake. I felt another a few hours later. And another sometime after that. Both times it felt like the house was slightly shifting from heat/cold, or settling. Just a quick jult again in each case. I did not find any other reports about those last 2 yet. From California, very sensitive to them, & hate them, since my 1st '70s Sylmar quake when I was a teenager.April

    People :
    Felt by persons at rest, on upper floors or favorably placed.
    MMI III (Weak shaking) ?

    Slight damage to buildings with low standard. Some stucco or cement plaster falls. Large display windows broken. Damage to a few weak domestic chimneys, some may fall.
    Environment :
    Trees and bushes shake, or are heard to rustle. Loose material may be dislodged from sloping ground, e.g. existing slides, talus slopes, shingle slides.
    MMI VII (Very strong shaking) ?
    People
    General alarm. Difficulty experienced in standing. Noticed by motorcar drivers who may stop.
    Fittings :
    Large bells ring. Furniture moves on smooth floors, may move on carpeted floors. Substantial damage to fragile contents of buildings.
    Structures :
    Unreinforced stone and brick walls cracked. Low standard buildings cracked with some minor masonry falls. A few instances of damage to buildings of ordinary workmanship. Unbraced parapets, unbraced brick gables, and architectural ornaments fall. Roofing tiles, especially ridge tiles may be dislodged. Many unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, often falling from roof-line. Water tanks Type I burst. A few instances of damage to brick veneers and plaster or cement-based linings. Unrestrained water cylinders (hot-water cylinders) may move and leak. Some common windows cracked. Suspended ceilings damaged.
    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.

    1. A couple days ago I felt the seattle/Tacoma earthquake, the one at 9 in the morning, and I live in Eatonville. I was outside sitting in my van when I felt what I would say is a tremor, then it became very clear that it was earthquake bcause my van door then the entire van itself started to shake. it lasted for about 10-15 seconds with about 2 waves to it.

    2. i heard a big boom last night . i thought someone hit the house . Darrington wash

    3. I am starting to think I'm going goofy. For over a week I have been feeling earthquakes? or tremors? Anyone else feeling this as well.

    4. O.K. i am starting to think I have lost it. The past week or more I have been feeling earthquakes? tremors? Is anyone else feeling this?
