Nice pictures and they do kind of look like earthquake clouds, lets hope not though because I woke up this morning and the last thing I remember in my dream is equake showing a 5.9 in castle rock. Sadly I'm not much of a pyschic and have never had a dream come true that I can remember.

Nice picture clarity though, we should get a nice beautiful day again today.

Thanks...it was hard to show in a picture, but the weird thing was that those 'waves' of clouds were actually criss-crossing each other, all over the sky. Probably just the wind currents hitting each other up high, but they looked like other EQ pictures I have seen before.

So far there were only a couple of micro quakes here today. With the way those quakes are moving up the coast, it's a little nerve racking, but I am still hoping that those EQ's off the coast of Oregon was enough to release the pressure here for a little bit!

So activity has picked up here today and there are some wierd signatures in the surrounding areas of a 3.2 quake in a location you don't typically see them.

Here is a list of quakes for Washington.

Check out these siesmos from that area:

WOLL

WRD

EPH

DAVN

TUCA

LOC

BRV

DDRF

Here is a link to the whole SITE

It looks like LOC or TUCA are the closest to is, but I curious about all of these...some wierd signatures.

Wow, look's like lot's of activity on those... we will have to see what develop's....

I know....these ones are very obviously mirco quakes. I'm not sure how to pull up a historical map, but I don't think this area normally sees this kind of action.

Am I imagining HT on a couple of those? I just can't see much detail on these. Maybe Puterman has access to something better and can put some 'sound' to it?

westcoast,

Do you live near where the Brightwater Treatment Plant is being built? I live very close and many times in the last few months I've heard something that sounds like a freight train behind my house. There have also been a few hard quick jolts strong enough to knock books from their shelves. I also monitor earthquakes in the PNW and there were not earthquakes at those times. Part of the BTP is a huge underground tunnel being built that goes to Lake Washington. I think that this explains a lot of the sounds and jolts we have been experiencing.

Regarding a caldera, I think you could be right.

Nope, I am North of Seattle. I wasn't aware of that project, so maybe that would explain some of those wierd signatures we were looking at earlier in this thread. Thanks for that info.

Regarding these recent ones, it's actually on the other side of the mountains, closest to Lakeview and Soap Lake. I guess that with my concern of a possible lava chamber under us, I am paying close attention to any unusuall quakes here. I don't know yet if this one qualifies as that, but those seismos tell a story!

I just came across this thread regarding a large 'boom' heard across a broad area in Oregon.

ATS Thread: Loud "boom" rocks portland Oregon

Another poster linked This map of personal accounts for hearing the boom that day. (Police later stated they think it was a pipe bomb, but many disagree)

Several posters have suggested the possibility that this could be a pre-curser to a larger Earthquake, since this is the second time in a couple of weeks that this event has happened. In looking at the map, I can't help but notice that the area where this was reported, is directly across from where the larger quakes in the ocean where mentioned earlier in this thread.

Also, compare this map listing the most recent quake in blue, to the previous map of the 'boom'. Notice the correlation?

I do not believe in coincidences.

Okay, I just posted this in the quakewatch thread, but I really want to cut/paste it here also, for those of us keeping a closer eye on home. I think this is something to keep an eye on. I really feel that with all the shakin goin on in the world right now, there's a good chance it's going to have some sort of affect on us here in the PNW. Check this out:

Hey you guys, take a look at THIS.

It's the current live seismo for Mount Hood. I think it's pretty obvious what I'm talking about, but it's about 1500 to 1520. If you go back and look you'll see that there isn't any kind of patern for cultural noise (IMO) that would give that signal....avalanche? Although, I don't think any avalanche would last that long.....watchya think?


Wow. I went searching for another, newer seismo that is at Mount Hood and take a look at what I found: HERE.

Here is a link to the map I pulled it off of : link to map It's station is TDH

Westcoast, don't know if you are still watching this thread but we had a shaker a little out west today. Did you feel it? I didn't.

Edit to add: come to think of if I was driving at that point though......

Yup...another poster pointed that one out to me. If I felt it, I didn't realize it.


There is a thread going (current) about a a swarm off the coast of Oregon today. Check this out:

Yet another article about what's goung on in Washington / Pac NW

ourplanetischanging.blogspot.com...

Just wanted to add this article was written in 2009, if you read the last sentence of this article (Similar deep tremors are being tracked at other subduction zones around the globe, including in Alaska, Japan, Mexico and Chile), you will see we have just recently in 2010 had large stress releasing EQ's in Alaska, Mexico(baja), Japan and Chile's large ones. The ONLY one left is the *Cascadia subduction zone*

It seems that we are next !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jadacapri, your posts prompted me to dig a little further into this matter. After all, the PNW is home to me and anything like this is of great interest, I need to stay informed. Although this is off the MSM, there are still some good points, not to be taken lightly.

source: www.msnbc.msn.com...

Quotes from article- "There's an 80 percent chance the portion of the fault off southern Oregon and Northern California would break in the next 50 years and produce a megaquake."

"The Pacific Northwest "has a long geological history of doing exactly what happened in Chile," said Brian Atwater, a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey and University of Washington. "It's not a matter of if but when the next one will happen." "

"The Chilean quake occurred in an offshore region that was under increased stress caused by a 1960 magnitude-9.5 quake — the largest recorded in history, according to geologist Jian Lin of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution."

"Similar tectonic forces are at play off the Pacific Northwest where the Juan de Fuca plate is diving beneath North America. At some point, centuries of pent-up stress will cause the plates to slip. Scientists cannot predict exactly when a quake will occur, only that one will happen. "

Some interesting food for thought. I also wonder if a mega quake could affect the volcanoes here. That would be a double whammy.

I am wondering if you folks are hearing the same booming noises as the folks over in Iceland have been hearing?

Thanks for the info. A little unsettling. It is not of matter of IF but WHEN. They have said for years that we are long overdue.

Yes, I believe a 'mega quake' would have a huge impact on the volcanos, especially if the suspected magma chamber exists. If it does, I would imagine they would all go off at once. God, I don't even want to think about that! There have been a few more quakes under Rainier...also a bit scary.

There have also been a couple at Helens:

I know it is off the coast of Oregon vs Washington but trust me, it is all most definately connected. With this size of quake I have to wonder if that is the release, or the preclude to something bigger either in the same spot or further north?

Agan, quite a few.


The ones not shown here are the micro quakes that have also been happening the past couple of months at several of the volcanos. Namely Mt. Hood, Rainier and Helens.

Thanks Westcoast, I've been keeping my eye on our area a little more closely lately. Glad there don't seem to be many stirings under Baker.!!


I hope these recent quakes are relieving stress, instead of building up more, leading to a larger quake, as could be the case on these faults.

As of this posting, the 4.1 near the oregon coast that just happened still is not on the main USGS list.

Before anyone comments on this being normal for a fault area.....no, IMO this is above what our 'normal' EQ levels are. Yes, the flurries come and go....but i have been noticing an up-trend ever since the Chile and Mexico quake.
