Nearly an hour ago a 3.6-magnitude earthquake struck 1.3 miles east of Mount Vernon, Skagit County, Washington, USA at a depth of 13km.

As is usual, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might still be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports, but it is unlikely.

Towns or cities close to the epicenter most likely felt very weak shaking. This includes Mount Vernon (Skagit County), Big Lake, Sedro Woolley, Anacortes, Haller, Oak Harbor (Island County), Bellingham and Marysville.
