Any opinions of this guys?

Oregon is in jail a very vulnerable spot right now.
The Juan de Fuca fault has been active recently and with this kind of activity throughout the Ring, it's worrisome.
Oregon is vulnerable for tsunami, be it the Juan de Fuca fault that slips, or further away in Alaska or Japan. A Japanese quake seriously damaged the NE coast several hundred years ago. So, it's possible.

I've been reading on the professional battle in the seismology field.
To say they're creating 2 schools of thought on the increased in quakes is an understatement.
Eventually one of them will be right. Kinda like a broken clock being right twice a day.

Either we'll see a quieting period, or a big Quake somewhere....then again, maybe it'll just rock and roll for awhile.
Earthquake prediction is not even an art, it more like calling 1-800- MISS CLEO
Nobody knows wtf will happen.

I have had the west coast on my mind for volcanism, earthquake and tsunami for a little while now. Just can't seem to shake the thought.
