Earthquake swarm continues shaking near Bremerton

BREMERTON — Scientists say hundreds of tiny earthquakes have rumbled through the Bremerton area since the start of May— most too weak for humans to feel.

How long the shaking will continue is anyone’s guess.

“Sometimes these swarms last years, sometimes they’re over in an hour,” Pacific Northwest Seismic Network Director John Vidale said Thursday.

The chances of a significant earthquake still remain low.

“The overwhelming odds are there is nothing damaging in our near future,” Vidale said.
