The natural disaster happened at 2:51 a.m. local time in Three Lakes, Wa.

The tremor, which hit the Three Lakes area of Washington State, less than 20 km from Everett, was measured at magnitude-4.6 around 2:51 am today.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said there were no reports of injuries or damage from the quake. "We are spooked and still awake", Rob Fuhriman told KIRO TV.

"It was a tough game for us", he said . "It's very hard work, high intensity, pressing a lot without the ball". It is going to be Henrique Hilário who himself was a Chelsea player a few years ago.

Bill Steele, seismology lab coordinator with the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, said this quake was related to the North American crust, not the Cascadia subduction zone - which is the source of nightmarish scenarios for a mega natural disaster in the Northwest.

CBS News reports that the natural disaster was the largest in the Seattle area since a 6.1 quake in February 2001.

A 4.6-magnitude quake is relatively benign, but it comes just six days after a magnitude-7.1 quake struck Southern California, the region's worst in 20 years.
