This has been reviewed and there seems to be no major threat of tsunami or damage. If there is any major aftershocks we will be sure to mention them and any possibility of danger they may cause. For now here is a map of the P-waves sent out by this earthquake:


(Reuters) – A magnitude 5.6 earthquake struck off the coast of the West Coast state of Washington on Sunday, the United States Geological Survey said.

The depth was reported at 6.3 miles and the quake was located 190 miles west of Neah Bay, the USGS said. There was no immediate statement from the U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center based in Hawaii on the quake.
