  • Coos Bay - Just felt the bed very lightly shaking. It was enough to bring me out of a deep sleep. Only lasted a few seconds... 20-30 seconds. Was it an earthquake?
  • Salem - I know it is crazy but the only reason I am here is my Dog felt in Salem Oregon. She acts a certain way so I looked it up....I am sure of it!
  • Aumsville , OR - I grew up on a fault line and haven't felt one in years... IT was a very mild one... not like Loma Prieta! I would take a cluster of little earthquakes any day over a big one! It's actually reassuring to know the pressure is being released..

  • Nine Mile Falls, WA - I'm not sure what I felt, bit it occurred at 9:17 a.m. this morning, September 10, 2016. It felt like it came from the north of my location and was more like a slight quivering of the house. Occasionally when a heavy piece of equipment comes down the road, the house might shake, but I listened and didn't hear the engine of any such equipment. Thank you, Coleen

    Environment :
    Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).
    MMI VIII (Severe shaking) ?
    People Alarm may approach panic. Steering of motorcars greatly affected. Structures : Low standard buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. ordinary workmanship buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged in some cases. A few instances of damage to buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes. Monuments and pre-1976 elevated tanks and factory stacks twisted or brought down. Some pre-1965 infill masonry panels damaged. A few post-1980 brick veneers damaged. Decayed timber piles of houses damaged. Houses not secured to foundations may move. Most unreinforced domestic chimneys damaged, some below roof-line, many brought down. Environment : Cracks appear on steep slopes and in wet ground. Small to moderate slides in roadside cuttings and unsupported excavations. Small water and sand ejections and localized lateral spreading adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames. Environment : Cracking of ground conspicuous. Landsliding general on steep slopes. Liquefaction effects intensified and more widespread, with large lateral spreading and flow sliding adjacent to streams, canals, lakes, etc.
