EARTHQUAKES — Earth-shaking news from northcentral Washington today.A 4.6 mag. earthquake occurred in Omak, Wash., today at 5:09 a.m., and was ~11.9 km deep, according to Andy Buddington of the Spokane Community College geology department. See the seismogram from the SCC station above.

I wonder what Omak hunters thought as they got ready to head out after deer this morning.
