Another series of small earthquakes was recorded Wednesday on the Key Peninsula, according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.
The largest was a 3.4-magnitude temblor that rattled the region at 1:14 a.m., about two miles from Bremerton. About three hours later, a 2.7-magnitude quake struck at 4:18 a.m. a little over three miles from Bremerton.
The U.S. Geological Survey said more than 550 people reported feeling the quake, according to The Associated Press.
A week ago, four minor quakes hit the same area.
On May 3, the Seismic Network reported 3.3- and a 2-magnitude quakes. On Thursday, 2.8- and a 2.9-magnatude temblors ratted the Key Peninsula in the morning. Since then, there have been 42 tiny quakes.
The continued activity is typical of an earthquake “swarm.” said Bill Steele with the Seismic Network.
“It’s interesting, but not alarming,” he told The AP.
