(Worthy News) – Oregon experienced a series of more than 50 earthquakes all ranging in magnitude this week, but experts say the seismic activity is nothing to be alarmed about.
The National Weather Service announced on Tuesday that there had been a “swarm” of earthquakes off the Oregon coast with the strongest one hitting 5.8 magnitude. However, the agency said the earthquakes were considered common in that area and little water was displaced, meaning there was no risk of tsunami.
Local media reported a series of earthquakes began Tuesday afternoon about 200 to 250 miles off the coast of Newport, Ore. Two earthquakes with magnitudes 5.3 and 5.5 occurred around 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Tuesday, with two more magnitude 5.0 and 5.8 quakes hitting several hours later. Another 5.8 quake came along just before 5:30 p.m., and multiple smaller aftershocks continued into Tuesday evening. [ Source: The Hill (Read More…) ]
