WINTHROP — Some Methow Valley residents felt a small earthquake early Tuesday, but officials said no damages have been reported.
A 2.9 magnitude quake centered about 18 miles northwest of Okanogan was recorded at 5:39 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey’s earthquake website.
A map on the site showed the epicenter located about halfway between the Okanogan Valley and the Methow Valley.
A few people chatted about the quake on a Methow Valley bulletin board, saying the quake felt like snow shedding from their roof, or a diesel truck rumbling by.
But no reports came to dispatchers at the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office, said Sheriff Frank Rogers.
