USA: An earthquake measured at a magnitude of 4.3 struck near Mount St. Helens in Washington state on Monday, shaking an area extending north to Puget Sound and south across the Oregon border.

There were no reports of damage or injuries, but the main tremor was felt over a distance of roughly 120 miles from north to south, said Bill Steele, a spokesman for the University of Washington's Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.

The quake, recorded at 10:35 a.m. local time, was centered about 5 1/2 miles north of the Mount St. Helens crater at a depth roughly 3 miles underground.

It was followed by three aftershocks measuring between 2.0 and 3.0 in magnitude and more than 100 smaller tremors.
