June 27 (UPI) -- A 4.3-magnitude earthquake shook central Washington on Wednesday night.

So far, no injuries or major damage has been reported. The earthquake was about 14 miles of Leavenworth, Wash., and hit at about 7:45 p.m. It was felt in Leavenworth, Wenatchee, the Methow Valley, Chelan and around other parts of North Central Washington.

Several small aftershocks followed the initial earthquake. The earthquake was reported just one day following a 3.0 magnitude quake was felt in Oklahoma.
