Portland -- A 3.5 magnitude earthquake hit near Molalla Friday just before 10 p.m. according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.

According to the United States Geological Survey people from Salem to Washougal reported feeling the earthquake.

"The house shook. It was quick. It was about a second and a half and I thought 'oh my gosh, that was the biggest gust of wind,'" said Katie Dunwell, a Tigard woman who felt the quake.

Dunwell was with her husband in the same room, but he didn't feel the quake.

So far there have been no reports of damage or injuries.
