Roy, WA / MMI IV (Light shaking): It woke me up and scared my 20 year old daughter. It wasn’t the usual sounds of JBLM. We have lived in the area and watched the PNSN site for over a decade as we are avid mountaineers, we have never felt the house shake or had windows rattled by the small quakes near Mt. Rainier.
