Two Threes on Oregon Border!

UPDATE: We’ve now had five SEVEN quakes in the Lakeview area instead of three.

Update:

I found this at Portland IMC:

One more interesting fact about Lakeview. As the water dries up there has been an increase in small earthquake swarms. Some locals believe that the underground aquifers are all but gone and there are a number of sinkholes beginning to appear in the geology. In effect, the ground is collapsing. The whole area is a natural hot geological area. Hot water from natural the natural volcano lakes region is rising up and drinking and irrigation water is disappearing from wells and streams. Few locals are willing to address the earthquake swarms. They blame the lack of water on Environmentalists who are somehow keeping the water from flowing to their ranches, farms and houses.

  1. This is an interesting little sequence. It will be interesting to see how it plays out over the next few days. It was June and July of 2004 when they had a decent swarm of quakes. In 1968 they had an even strong swarm which included many 4’s as well as a 5.1 and a 5.0.
