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.

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)
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.
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.
