Quake Outlook in British Columbia

UBC Journalism News Service has an eye-opening article showing earthquake activity is “…a constant feature of British Columbia.” There is one interactive map that shows all since 1700 and this map that shows the eologic forces at work in the area.

There does seem to be quite an increase in quake activity since 1985!

BTW, one thought, Oregon hasn’t experienced many quakes and leads me to believe that the subduction zone is locked and could unleash a big quake.
