Magnitude 4.6 earthquake hits just outside Seattle

The state of Washington was rocked Friday morning with a 4.6 magnitude natural disaster Friday morning, the Associated Press reports.

Since the initial quake and aftershock, the USGS recorded five more small earthquakes in the Monroe, Washington, area, all between magnitude 1.2 and 1.7 Friday morning.

A flurry of seismic activity in Snohomish County has people on edge after two earthquakes, magnitudes 4.6 and 3.5, shook the area. A USGS intensity map tracked how far away the natural disaster could be felt.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Many South Koreans believe that eating dog meat or chicken soup on those days gives them strength to beat the heat. They also put mock dog carcasses on a table.

Two minutes later, a 3.5 magnitude quake was detected near Monroe, Washington. "I grabbed my phone off the nightstand and logged into the USGS site to learn I'd just experienced the waves of a 4.6 magnitude quake centered under Monroe".

A tsunami was not expected following Friday's early morning earthquakes.
