Small earthquake shakes Seattle

Posted by Geeky Swedes on January 30th, 2009

An earthquake centered 14 miles north of Seattle shook some people awake at 5:25 a.m. It measured 4.5 on the scale, too small to cause any damage. We slept right through the quake, but did you feel it?

Update 12:15 p.m. – After inspecting the city’s bridges, the Seattle Department of Transportation says that the earthquake did not cause any damage to the Ballard Bridge, Fremont Bridge or the Viaduct.
