Small Earthquake Rattles Oregon Coast

Published: Updated:

ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - The U.S. Geographical Survey reports that a 3.8-magnitude earthquake shook the northern Oregon coast.

The agency's website says the quake hit shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday near Warrenton and Astoria.

There have been no reports of damage.

Warrenton Mayor Mark Kujala and Police Chief Matthew Workman tell The Daily Astorian they both felt the quake.

Workman said he felt a second of movement, and then a thud. He checked in at a convenience store and employees told him nothing had fallen from the shelves.
