A magnitude 3.3 earthquake was felt throughout the Portland area at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, but there are no reports of injury or damage.

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network says the quake was about 12 miles deep and centered near Sherwood in Washington County, about 17 miles southwest of Portland.

People who reported it on a U. S. Geological Survey website indicates the quake was lightly felt in the Portland metro area and from Battle Ground, Wash., to Salem.

A Washington County dispatcher told The Oregonian there were no reports of injury or damage.
