I don't doubt it. ATS members like yourself are always on top of things. Must have been making the thread when you posted.

Fairly shallow depth...

It would seem that this is an "adjustment" from the mag 8+ quakes earlier, but that's pure speculation on my part.

I'm by no means a pro, just bringing the info to the masses. IMO it would be considered medium level quake.

They have them from time-to-time. 5.9 is somewhat big, but nothing too terrible. (So speaks the jaded ex-Bay Area resident.

Oregon is no stranger to earthquakes, but it is also a part of the Ring Of Fire. Many people believe that area is long over due for a huge event. For more information you can search for some of True American's threads or Westcoast. They have several threads that discuss the Cascadia subduction zone and what a the expected "big one" will mean. They are very very informative threads.

This combined with the Mexico quake and the Sumatra quake.....Things seem to be heating up!!! Lets hope the New Madrid doesn't start to move and shake.

I hope these aren't foreshocks in Oregon or Mexico...

We're definitely seeing a spurt of quakes for some reason.

What I find odd, is that two years in a row, we've had major quakes on the 11th of the month. (Japan quake was 3/11 last year)

Just an amusing fact considering how often people (myself included) see the number 11.
