Awe you beat me to it !! DOOM ON !!!!! Lets follow it south and east now following the fault lines remember deep produces bigger shallower it would be good to look at the last few days/weeks to see where this stemmed from.look north and west of it.... Also hisorically looking at the sequence of previous eq's in that area will give you a pretty good idea of whats to come....

Oh and just in time as in right before elections 2 weeks n counting...

No tsunami warning by the way

Both looked to be right on the Juan de fuca plate where it joins with the pacific plate , the first one being further up the Juan de Fuca

I posted around the same time oops.


Seen them showing up in real time- RSOE Alert Map

Oh .god I hope it’s not doom on , since I live near vancouver!
Never felt either though and I’ve been sitting pretty still


I keep thinking though we are due for the BIG ONE!

It’s like they’re travelling down the one plate , not sure what that means.

Yeah I saw them popping up on my apps . I was stunned because all the ones over 6 ( which I only get alerts for) are usually in the Tonga region etc. Never near me. Except that one we had in Haida a few years back.


I was going to bed early for once until the excitement started

With recent history, and I believe this is way different from the past, from the PNSN shows it's been silent. I worded this wrong: “It’s a remarkable process, it’s what we call a ‘slow slip.’ It’s the surface of the North American plate moving backwards towards the ocean,” Cassidy explained.

Figures they'd happen around bedtime!

I don't see much yet for people reporting on feeling them, let alone reporting on it, anything for you guys?

I don't think any local Washington State news is sharing it either, seen Canada ones though and national US news.

I wonder if there is a correlation between this and the Mars volcanic eruption?


Are we allowed to speculate that wild?

All the Canadian news outlets are reporting it and I’ve not read any comments so far on them being felt. My family live on the island but are all in bed unaware.

Isn’t the Juan de Fuca always on the move ever so slowly? Seems like it’s being squeezed by the Pacific and north American plate. I can’t recall which direction it’s always moving . I’d not live on the island! It might slide right under the mainland one day during the big one.

Yes, the whole region is warping due to the movement flow and restrictions.


British Columbia however is part of rigid North America and moves with it. This results in the Puget Lowland being compressed and warped like an accordion with alternating uplifted and down warped terrain shortening the distance between Centralia, Washington, and the Canadia border. Dr. Ray Wells of the USGS developed a model to demonstrate this process and produced the cartoon animation located above the GPS Vector map.



More from the link earlier shared to the EQ thread:

Our work does suggest that a large event is more likely to start in either the northern or southern sections of the fault, where the plates are more fully locked, and gives a possible reason for why that may be the case.

This is from an older article after there were smaller ones



The cause for concern is what happens when the Juan de Fuca plate eventually submerges under the much larger Pacific plate. For approximately 330 years, the plate has continuously been pushed down, an activity that will eventually lead it to be pushed under the North America plate, causing the region to sink six feet on the minimum and may result in one of the largest earthquakes in human history.

If the entire 650-mile long Cascadia Subduction Zone (which includes the Juan de Fuca plate) were to experience a full rupture, it could not only trigger a 9.0 earthquake, but a tsunami as well.

The Juan De Fuca plate stretches from Northern California to British Columbia and the Cascadia Subduction Zone stretches from N. Vancouver Island to Cape Mendicino, California.

Sure hope Tofino is ok - I went there on my honeymoon last year and pray to God it stays around long enough to return!

South China Morning Post

Hang on... Noticed this earlier. Within 24 hours of this news, in the exact same area?
What’s going on here that we’re not seeing? Chinese underwater monitoring posts?

There were three quakes, 6.5, then 6.8, then 6.5, all within about 45 minutes, followed by 3 smaller quakes in the 4 range, see my source in the earthquake thread.

I'm surprised I've never heard anyone talk about the impacts of a large earthquake under the crust.

We've all seen lava flows, that stuff moves around pretty well, but is super dense. A huge earthquake that sends a tsunami hurling into Cali is also sending a massive sub-surface shockwave towards the super volcano hanging out just past there.

Talk about a bang.
