A number of my co-workers and I have been watching the USGS map of earthquakes since the massive Chili earthquake. We've been on edge since the
number of quakes have been on the rise worldwide. Before I left work today I did not noticed these two quakes off the Oregon coast. We're going to
have a bit to talk about when they see these two quakes on the map tomorrow. I wonder if we will be seeing more quakes along this Juan De Fuca plate.
Well, it's more than two...you see the second link in the OP? Part of the reason for me posting this is because of the position of all those quakes
right on edges of the plate...Still trying to figure out if they are out of the ordinary or not.
I looked up the 4.3 from today, and here is the historic tensor moment solution:
From the looks of that, it is somewhat uncommon for quakes to occur in those positions on the plate, but it has happened before, as you can see.
Let's just hope it is nothing, but keep our eyes peeled.
