NEAH BAY — A 4.5 magnitude earthquake struck Friday just off the northwestern tip of the North Olympic Peninsula, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake hit at 1:35 p.m.
Its epicenter was about 29 miles west-northwest of Neah Bay, the USGS said.
No damage or injuries were reported, but hundreds of people reported feeling the quake around Victoria and Vancouver, B.C., and also in Neah Bay.
Neah Bay students and Makah tribal employees were evacuated to assembly points as a precaution after the temblor.
Officials were notified that there was no tsunami threat, and students safely returned to the school.
Officials asked that the community take safety measures and precautions in case of more seismic activity.
Chris Ferrier, Crescent boys basketball coach and athletic director, posted on Facebook that Friday’s Neah Bay game was postponed due to the earthquake off the coast.
