COOS BAY, Ore. -- Just after 8 this morning, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Oregon, according to the USGS.

According to the USGS website, there were more than 350 reports of people feeling shaking from the coast, inland to Eugene, even all the way inland to Bend. Plus, there are reports of shaking as far north as Seattle.

The reason so many people felt the shaking is because this was a shallow earthquake, only 3.3 miles deep, according to KEZI 9 News Meteorologist Andrew Shipotofsky. 

The earthquake struck 178 miles off the coast of Coos Bay, USGS reported. There is no threat of a tsunami from this earthquake, the USGS said.
