Here we go, I fear a much larger earthquake to hit the California/Oregon area in the next month. It will be similar in magnitude to the Japan quake last year 8.8 to 9.2. The earth is responding to all the recent large earthquakes that have upset the rotation of the earth. It's stretching and readjusting the the massive displacement of mass and rotational "harmony". God bless all residents within 50 miles of the western coast of the U.S., be prepared, know where the high ground is, have a plan. Good Luck and God Bless!!

Randy, thanks for the update. I agree with above comment. We are on the brink of a huge quake. The scientific data is too strong.

I live off the coast of Oregon. This is getting "too close" for comfort. Felt this quake tonight. Very alarming. I am concern that the big one is just a matter of time. Many volcanoes have lied inactive for a long time here in the Northwest.
