Seismologists at the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network have been watching the tremors, and they have a theory that the quakes are being caused by fluid moving underneath the earth's crust.
For that reason, they think the risk is only a little higher than normal for a bigger quake, which could bring catastrophic damage.

Biggest quake of the ongoing sworn so far: 3.4 E of Bremerton,WA.
The area has been pretty active as of late with these smaller EQs. Here's a news video that goes into detail about if it's a precursor to a bigger quake on the Seattle fault line(ie more damage to the city than a Cascadia EQ).
Localized, ongoing and could indicate something bigger.
