A swarm of earthquakes off the Oregon coast the past couple of days has caught the attention of seismologists. Bill Steele with the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network says they're not where we typically see quakes. They’re not where quakes typically occur, closer to shore. It is out where the Juan de Fuca Plate is grinding along side the Pacific Plate, out at sea. The area is known as the Blanco Fracture Zone and Steele says the pressure it's creating will eventually lead to a major earthquake. Seismologists locally and nationally continually monitor the location.
