4.6 quake shakes north central Washington



WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — The earthquake that shook north central Washington has been upgraded to a magnitude 4.6.

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network says it was upgraded from a 4.0 after a seismologist reviewed the data. It’s still described as light.

It occurred at 5:09 a.m. Friday and was centered seven miles northwest of Omak, and 8 miles northwest of Okanogan.

A dispatcher in the Okanogan County sheriff’s office, Sarah Gibson, says there are no reports of injuries or damage. She wasn’t at work at the time, but was told “every line was full.”

KPQ in Wenatchee reports callers in Leavenworth described it as a rolling motion. Someone in Twisp said it was strong enough to shake items off a shelf.

It was also felt in Tonasket, Chelan, Moses Lake and Colville.
