LONGVIEW — Seismologists say two minor earthquakes were felt in communities near Longview on Sunday morning.
The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network’s John Vidale said the two quakes happened about an hour apart and within a kilometer of each other. He said people definitely felt it but the quakes aren’t likely to cause damage because they were deep and not intense.
The first 2.4 magnitude temblor occurred at about 8:45 a.m. and was centered about 15 miles southeast of Longview. The second 3.0 magnitude quake happened at about 9:30 a.m.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported the temblor was felt in Longview, Kalama, Woodland and La Center.
