Earthquake Swarm Seattle Area

After a flurry of minor earthquakes struck the Seattle area Thursday, local seismologists aren’t sure if the quakes will continue, or if they portend a more powerful and dangerous event to come. Concerns shifted from “Did you feel it?” to “What does it mean?” on Thursday after two morning earthquakes near Bremerton, one with a magnitude of 3.6, and another quake off Whidbey Island with a 3.4 magnitude. The Bremerton quakes were the latest in a swarm of 13 minor earthquakes that have hit the Kitsap Peninsula since May 3. A much smaller 1.7 magnitude quake was recorded Thursday near Granite Falls at 2:37 p.m. Source>>>>>
