A swarm of earthquakes shook the Cascadia Subduction Zone off of the Oregon coast on Sunday morning shortly after 9:00 a.m., according to data posted on the official U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) website.
The swarm marks the second in just a 5-day span giving fair warning to coastal residents who have already been warned as early as 2015 by a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) official that “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast” from a mega-tsunami if indeed the big one hits.
A magnitude 5.3 quake struck at 9:10 a.m. and was followed by a series of aftershocks.
Experts such as Michio Kaku and others have warned the fault is ‘overdue’ for the big one.
Residents should remain vigilant.
