A small earthquake struck the Dollars Corner area near Battle Ground Friday morning, according to the University of Washington's Department of Earth and Sciences.

The earthquake, which happened two miles west-northwest of Dollars Corner, measured 2.4 magnitude at 10:21 a.m., the University of Washington reported.

There were no reports of damage or injuries associated with the earthquake, fire officials said.

"I heard about no damage," said Larry Bartel, a deputy chief with Clark County and Rescue. "I did not even know there was an earthquake."

Crystal Wedding, café supervisor at Pacific Northwest Best Fish Company in Ridgefield said she felt a little vibration but it wasn’t anything to worry about.

“I was sitting in my car a little while ago and it moved a little,” she said.

An employee at O’Brady’s Drive-In said that no one felt the quake.
