Yes, it seems that something is brewing for the west coast.

The month of November also saw an increase in earthquakes in the fault system of the Gulf of California that connects with the San Andres fault.

two hours ago this happened M4.0


During the past 24 hours, Gulf of California was shaken by 7 quakes of magnitude 4.0

Several earthquakes struck far off the Oregon coast Tuesday afternoon but there is no threat of tsunami, the National Weather Service said. The quakes hit roughly 200 to 250 miles off the coast of Newport.

Two earthquakes, magnitude 5.3 and 5.5, struck around 1:30 and 2 p.m. respectively after a series of smaller quakes in the same area. Two more, magnitude 5.0 and 5.8, hit several hours hours later. Another 5.8 quake hit in the same area just before 5:30 p.m., and multiple smaller aftershocks followed into Tuesday evening.

This is from Fort St. John, in BC December 7th.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Earthquakes Canada is reporting a magnitude 4.0 earthquake that occurred 67 kilometres from Fort St. John on Monday morning.

According to the agency, the earthquake caused no damage, and it was not felt.

The quake occurred at a depth of 2.39 kilometres at around 6:45 this morning.

The region is not a stranger to earthquakes with the largest incident dating back to 2001, when a 5.4 magnitude quake shook just on the other side of the B.C.-Alberta border near Dawson Creek.

Something is happening! New swarm of earthquakes move along Japan's subduction zone

A swarm of earthquakes move along the subduction zone, from Mount Fuji to the Kii Channel and Tokara Island, Japan from Saturday 04 to 08 December 2021.

Four days, almost more than 200 earthquakes and the ground continues to shake. That's been life lately for the residents of the Tokara Islands, a small chain found within Kagoshima Prefecture. But officials and experts say the tremors are not necessarily cause for alarm.

The Meteorological Agency said it does not know exactly what is causing the swarm of mostly small earthquakes in Japan, but added that they can continue for about a week.

YouTuber 'TheEarthMaster' presents a pretty good and measured overview, I think, of this most recent swarm off the West coast in the context of the Cascadia subduction zone, what's also occurring in and around Japan, plate tectonics in general, and other dot-connecting.

I just listened to it, but I didn't hear him mention anything about Japan and what is happening there. It was interesting never the less and I would be extra alert if I was living on the West coast of the US. That cluster of medium sized earthquakes in such a short time span signals something is afoot. What exactly is the big question.
