An aftershock measuring 3.5 was measured minutes later in Monroe, Wash.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported a 4.6 magnitude natural disaster rattled the Three Lakes area, about 40 miles northeast of Seattle.

The natural disaster occurred near Three Lakes, Washington at 2:51 a.m. local time.

No significant damages or injuries were reported to city infrastructure, according to Tacoma and Pierce County officials.

"We were sound asleep and the whole house shook and we all woke up".

Friday's quake is "more related to California kind of being dragged north and pressing us up against the buttress of British Columbia", Steele told KUOW's Angela King. The agency stated that it was 3.1 kilometers down.

The Northwest is especially prone to earthquakes.

Joan Gomberg, a USGS seismologist and affiliate faculty member at the University of Washington, said "the likelihood of a bigger one is small".

This latest quake in Seattle comes just a week after a powerful 7.1-magnitude natural disaster hit Southern California last Friday, causing damage to buildings.

The Seattle quake occurred the same day as a 4.9 magnitude natural disaster was measured in southern California. Thrust faults are common in the Cascade Range, Caruso said.
