A 3.0 magnitude earthquake was recorded at 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, originating at the east end of Lake Wenatchee.

The mild quake was noticeable indoors, particularly on upper floors, according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. A 3.0 quake is at the lower end of the Richter scale, on which 1.0 is barely noticeable and 8.0 devastates structures and causes the ground to move in visible waves.

The quake's epicenter was nearly 6 miles below the lake, the PNSN reported.
