No Damage From 3.6 Quake Near Gig Harbor

GIG HARBOR, Wash. (AP) — The Pierce County sheriff’s office says there are no reports of damage from a 3.6 magnitude earthquake that shook the Gig Harbor area.

Spokesman Ed Troyer says dispatchers had a half-dozen calls from people who felt it.

The seismic network website indicated the quake was felt on the Key Peninsula, parts of Kitsap County and the Olympia area.
