    If we western wet coast folks get all the little tremors all the time then the relief is taking place , we do get the odd large wiggle , it all sways for a bit , but that's on a long scale. It's when the build up of nothing , and then a release , the swaying can do damage .
    Felt many on this Rock & the other higher island / rock ..
    Many need to check the times of no small reliefs , then see why CA has so many bad shakers

    Don't know that I've ever been in a quake....

    I have been on offshore platforms being slammed by 15+ foot waves in the gulf,Guessing this is just a practice run for the real deal one day?

    I wonder for those living in the pacific north west ,if any one is checking the bridges .
    With all the movement and shifting I have to think that there might be some compromise going on .

    Today there were several quakes off the coast of OR.
    Series of earthquakes strike off Oregon coast Saturday
    One thing I thought of is road construction. I know that Oregon has established evacuation zones but what about road construction? I have been having to detour to get home for the past week. Detours during an evacuation will be messy.

    Nat Geo just published a piece on the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate.

    A tectonic plate is dying under Oregon. Here’s why that matters.
    A peek into the curious geology of the Pacific Northwest helps tease apart what may happen when the last bits of an oceanic plate get swallowed up.

    Follow the link for the rest of the article: A tectonic plate is dying under Oregon. Here’s why that matters.

    All that is missing is now standard 'more funds are needed' to complete the work. Net hard information in the article of use to Monkeys - zero..... A fun read tho....

    The request for funds normally won't appear in articles for mass consumption, but it is there, well enough hidden. With all those "maybes", "mights" and "coulds" in the article, I have to think about the proofs that the sky is falling.
    Nat'l Geo used to be full of actual science, which this article at least pays lip service to, good enough. I let my subscription lapse after this last change in editorial direction, about 2 years ago, when they shifted to soft science and art work.
    You are right, the average monkey won't get a lot of prepping info from it, but if you read it for speculative science, it's gold.
