Earthquakes can be caused by many natural phenomena and it's not a surprise one hits us.

The quake was a magnitude 4.6, the US Geological Survey reported, and its epicenter was near Three Lakes, Washington, about 40 miles north of Seattle. NWS Seattle was quick to publish a report of this quake and said that the ground did shake around 0252 Pacific Daylight Time.

The natural disaster was relatively shallow, but according to the USGS map, it was felt all the way to the Canadian border.

A tsunami was not expected following Friday's early morning earthquakes. Nothing like a Tsunami is anticipated, so the residents of Seattle can chill.
