QUILCENE — A series of small earthquakes, starting with a magnitude 3.4 jolt just before midnight Thursday, rattled the Quilcene-Brinnon area.
There were no reports of injuries or damage, but “my house just shook,” wrote one resident on Facebook following the quake at 11:55:51 p.m., according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.
A 2.8 aftershock was logged by the network at 4:57:07 a.m. today. The rest were micro quakes detected only by sensitive seismic equipment.
All of the quakes were about 18 miles beneath the surface and were in the southern Dabob Bay area, according to the network.
