A shaky start to your Independence Day, as a 4.2 magnitude earthquake struck just 9 miles east, northeast of Springfield. The USGS confirmed that the depth of the earthquake was 6 miles. No reports of damage have been reported. We are in store for another hot day here in Western Oregon, as strong high pressure is still sitting over most of the Northwest. A heat advisory is still in effect for the Willamette Valley through Sunday evening, which means we will see temperatures in the mid to upper 90s through the weekend. Make sure you stay hydrated and apply plenty of sunscreen.
No major damage reported after 4.2 Magnitude earthquake.
