Minutes ago the USGS reported a 3.2-magnitude earthquake near Mount Vernon, Skagit County, Washington State, USA at a depth of 15km. The light earthquake occured at 2.11pm local time.

Since the earthquake has just occurred, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

The earthquake was most likely felt in the towns or cities of Big Lake (pop. 1,800) located 2 miles from the epicenter, Mount Vernon (pop. 34,100) 6 miles away, Sedro Woolley (pop. 10,800) 8 miles away, Arlington (pop. 18,900) 14 miles away, and Anacortes (pop. 16,400) 20 miles away.
