According to the USGS, the 3.6 quake was about three miles deep and less than a mile from Key Center, Washington. Residents in the area reported items shaking on their walls, and a couple of broken teacups.

“Right under us!” Facebook user Jill Hindman said. “No damage just lots of shaking and rattling windows.”
