4th small earthquake in 3 days shakes Puget Sound area

SEATTLE (AP) — Officials say an earthquake with a 3.2 magnitude reported Wednesday southeast of Seattle near Maple Valley is the fourth small quake in the Puget Sound area in the past three days. The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network says the latest quake happened at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. On Tuesday morning, a small earthquake with a magnitude of 3.0 was reported near Carnation, one day after a smaller magnitude 2.2 quake was reported in the same location Monday. The Carnation quakes came after a magnitude 2.9 earthquake was recorded about four miles from Monroe early Monday. The earthquakes have been reviewed by a seismologist.
