5.2 earthquake rumbles off Oregon coast PORTLAND, Ore. - A magnitude 5.2 earthquake struck of the Oregon Coast on Wednesday, but was far enough away that it was unlikely anyone on land felt it.

No tsunami was warning was issued after the quake hit at 2:02 p.m. The epicenter was located along the Juan de Fuca plate fault line about 145 miles west of Coos Bay.

The location is an active quake region. A similar quake measuring 4.7 hit near the same location just hours earlier on Tuesday.

From February 2 post regarding the St Kitts quake:
Two significant quakes, two different fault zones- Alaska, Puerto Rico. West Coast, Midwest right in the middle.
