GIG HARBOR — The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office said there are no reports of damage from a 3.6-magnitude earthquake that shook the Gig Harbor area.

Spokesman Ed Troyer said dispatchers had a half-dozen calls from people who felt it.

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network recorded the quake at 11:41 a.m. Tuesday. It was shallow — just 3 miles deep — and centered 13 miles south of Port Orchard and 23 miles north of Olympia.

The seismic network website indicated the quake was felt on the Key Peninsula, parts of Kitsap County and the Olympia area.
