Recent earthquakes in the region might have Seattleites feeling a bit on edge. After all, the experts have been warning us all that “we’re due” for the Big One.
Most recently, a pair of quakes struck off the coast of Oregon late Monday and early Tuesday. A 5.7 magnitude earthquake was measured 127 miles west of Bandon, according to OregonLive. About three hours later, a 3.2 magnitude earthquake was measured 115 miles west of the community of Langlois.
Closer to home, a 3.0 magnitude earthquake was felt in the Carnation area around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. On Monday, a 2.9 magnitude earthquake struck in the Monroe area around 3:40 a.m.
On December 15, a 3.2 magnitude earthquake shook the Bremerton area.  The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network wrote shortly after that swarms of earthquakes that have been going on since 2017. MyNorthwest wrote about the swarms as well. The PNSN post asked, ‘What does this all mean? Should people in Bremerton be scared? No!’ However, it pointed out that Washington and Oregon residents should always be prepared for a major earthquake.
The Pacific Northwest is no stranger to quakes. They happen daily, but most don’t register above a magnitude of 3.o. Check the MyNorthwest earthquake tracker to see all of this week’s earthquakes.
Some of us may just need to refresh our supplies after preparing for the Big One in 2015. Why 2015? That’s when Kathryn Schulz of the “New Yorker” wrote about the devastation Seattle can expect if, or rather when, a 9.0 earthquake shakes Seattle.
