Whole fault will slip here soon doom coming to a city near you. This is the end. earthquake.usgs.gov...
Prepare for a bigger one this was just a foreshock.

Well, that's a pretty bold statement if I do say so myse...


gotta go...

I have said this in many threads. A member of the U.S. military remote viewing program has stated that he saw a Northern California Cascade dormant volcano erupting in the near future. I have no reason to doubt him and this event only adds credence to his viewing.
G_D help us all!

And why exactly is this moderate 5.1 any different from the hundreds of other quakes of the coast of the pacific northwest over the years? There's nothing to indicate this one would be any different.

LOL....really?


Just because there is an earthquake on a known fault line does not spell doom and gloom.

I will admit that it definately grabs my attention and could ofcourse be a precurser to something bigger, there is absolutely nothing else (that I am aware of) to indicate this.

I think that if you are going to start a thread with such an alarming statement, perhaps you should include some reasons as to why you feel this way, other than a moderate size quake on a fault.

Or were you joking?

Because the world is going crazy right now just seems rational to think everything else will too.

Really? Doesn't seem like much of a reason for that kind of statement.

BTW...it's downgraded to a 5.1

I check all of the siesmos for the volcanos in Washington and Oregon. They all felt it, but the only one possibly showing any kind of reaction is Helens, HERE Most likely a coincidence, but there looks like there was a small micro quake minutes before the oregon one too.

Keep in mind that this is a very 'noisy' station, but I find it odd that all the activity picked up only immediately after the 5.1 quake. Something to keep an eye on. (note: it is a beautiful sunny day here in the PNW, so weather shouldn't be a factor with the seismos)

No, I am not adding credence to the OP's claim, just trying to inject a little bit of fact here to go on, instead of wild speculation.

Yeah sorry I have been reading alot from GLP lately and it has caused to wildly speculate please take control of this thread and let me know about the seismic reactions in the area. Thank you.

Coupled with last night's 4.5 it does make me nervous but that's not necessarily founded on anything logical.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

There's no reason to believe this is a foreshock (also no reason to believe it isn't.) Just a reminder that we do live in earthquake country.

There have been a lot of little quakes in the vicinity of Shasta/Lassen lately if that's what you're referring to by Northern California Cascade Volcano, but I don't know that there's any evidence anything is brewing there. The area generally shakes like the rest of CA.

Hey Quakewatcher, thanks for that link. I missed that one! I may have even felt it...pretty much straight offshore from me. I always keep an eye on THIS list, but it doesn not include vancouver. (it should) If you look at the map you provided the link to, you'll see that while it is off of Vancouver Island, when you draw a straight line across from it, it is also off the coast of NorthWest Washington.

This perks my interest a little more now. We often have quakes in this region ofcourse, so it is not unusuall in itself, but those are two moderate quakes in 24 hours, so I will be paying more attention these next couple of days. Here is a LINK to my rough theory on the region I live in.

Alight....now I am paying even more attention.
...but really, not time for anyone to panic. Remember....active volcanos and fault lines equal EQ's. There will have to be a lot more and build in mag before I worry.


Edit to add: Here is how those quakes look at Mount Rainier.

Ughhhh......please stop. I'm sure these are just aftershocks, since they are located right over the larger one. So long as they do not increase.

Westcoast: we are neighbors
so yeah, this has my attention. Hey, would you happen to know how to pull up the Mt Rainier webicorder data in IRIS so I can see it closer to real time? Don't ask why I feel the need to do this.

I don't think I have what you want, (never did figure that IRIS thing out), but here are my two favorite sites:

PNSN

New one

Do you use GEE? If so, there are a ton of them you can view realtime. I have to leave right now for a few hours, or else I would already have them up. Keep an eye on it all, will ya?

Home with a sick kid today, so there's nothing to distract me from the show. I am trying not to download GEE to this latest computer, it is a memory hog and buggy as all get out. There's no reason I really *need* it either.

I'll keep the Juan de Fuca in line for you while you're gone.

ruh-roh, why do I see something bigger looking on the Rainier webicorder? Doesn't look like the other aftershocks, looks local. (between 12:04 and 12:05, not used to the scale of this particular webi but it's probably very small, just the local thing that concerns me.)

man you know what i can't get out of my mind? that huge CME the other day, they said it would hit (if it came near us) bout 7th of may, probably nothing

Keeping an eye on this thread anyway, thanks for the updates guys!

What do the aftershocks necessarily mean. I don't think it is anything big but I think it is significant there are two quakes 4.5 and 5.1. Could mean something big happen have you looked into the history of this subduction zone. Usually with subduction zones you have moderate to even strong foreshocks which lead to the big one although it could be months or even years before we know those were foreshocks.www.springerlink.com... Very interesting read which could give us more detail. We might be experiencing a silent slip which is prevalent along subduction zones
