Preliminary mag is 6.2, damage reported south of Seattle.
The best (skimpy) info I have on the epicenter is that it is somewhere
south of town, but nothing more specific. It was reportedly felt in
(you're apparently not even the only FoRK to hear the quake on a
conference call - what a connected world we live in, eh?)

We had to "call" the telecon on account of earthquake -- it must have lasted at least 15 seconds, with a couple of aftershocks. Really, really weird to be talking with them during this. Lots of "Get under the desk" and "Whoa!" comments.
