Magnitude 5.7 Earthquake Strikes Cascadia Subduction Zone

A moderately strong magnitude 5.7 earthquake has struck in the dangerous Cascadia Subduction Zone off the coast of California and Oregon.  This is the zone where "the big one" would likely take place, if it ever happens.  It comes after a strong magnitude 7.1 struck Mexico, which seems to have set in-motion, additional earthquakes up the same fault lines.  Folks on the west coast are STRONGLY URGED to be prepared for a larger quake.

According to the US Geological Survey (USGS) the quake took place at a shallow depth of only 15km.

The Cascadia Subduction Zone is responsible for the formation of the Cascadia Mountain range which runs from northern California all the way up to Vancounver, BC CANADA.  It is also responsible for the several Volcanoes in that mountain range, including Mt. Saint Helens, which erupted in the 1980's.

The simple explanation of this zone is as follows:

The Pacific Tectonic plate is forced UNDER (subducts) the North American Tectonic plate.  A portion of the North American plate is "snagged" or "stuck" to the Pacific plate as it's going under the North Merican plate; so the North American plate is being scrunched-up as the Pacific plate slides beneath it.

At some point, no one know when, part or all of the North American plate will suddenly become un-snagged.  When that happens, all the thousands of years of stress built up, will be instantly released.  "The big one."  The image below shows the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

So whenever a moderate earthquake takes place anywhere in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, it is a very dangerous thing.  It could be the prelude to the plates getting un-stuck, and the day that happens, a lot of people on the west coast of North AMerica are going to be killed. by a Magnitude 10+ earthquake.
