I know the feeling. I was up till nearly three am (my time) two nights ago and again til 1:30 this morning, half the time just watching the darned quake maps and feeling antsy. (Sceptics may blow their morning coffee out their nose now. )
This PNW/BC region has been more active in the past few months than it has been in decades. This new quake would be the third-largest in Canadian history, I believe. (Last October's was the second.)
That's a lot of energy being released in a fairly small section of a known fault. Maybe this is a good thing. I don't know. But people should be taking notice of these events because they are just hiccups compared to what that region is capable of down in the CSZ.
What would be ideal is for things to settle down again after these hiccups and be nice and quiet for a few decades.
