An earthquake and aftershock struck overnight off the coast of south-central Oregon, CBS affiliate KOIN reports.

The United States Geological Survey reports the initial quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 6.2, occurred just after 1:30 a.m. local time. It was centered more than 170 miles (264 kilometers) west of Coos Bay, about 220 miles southwest of Portland.

Robert Sanders of the USGS says there is no tsunami threat associated with the quake. He says people as far away as Portland reported feeling the tremblor.
Any of our Pacific Northwest members feel it?

Any of our Pacific Northwest members feel it?

Nope. But I slept through a M5.6 while basically right at the epicenter in 1993.

Nope, wouldn't have felt much from here anyway.
