On the same day, a 2.7 magnitude quake was recorded in Waterville. On Monday, a 1.7 magnitude and a 3.3 magnitude quake hit the same area.

The quakes are in the vicinity of known fault zones capable of causing serious damage in the Puget Sound region as the Seattle Fault line is believed to be capable of a magnitude 7.2 earthquake.

"We think the Seattle Fault is complicated," said John Vidale of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. Vidale also serves as the official seismologist for the state of Washington. "It could be in that system of faults, but we don know if there a primary fault down there, and if there is if these earthquakes are on it."

What makes the Seattle Fault so dangerous is that it very shallow, rising to the surface.

"It very interesting of course," says PNSN seismologist Renata Hartog. "Because how the Seattle Fault is driven from below is interesting to know. We don know that very well at the moment."

But scientists want to learn more, and each quake wholesale nfl jerseys becomes another data point for study, bringing the inaccessible depths under Puget Sound into sharper focus.

The Pacific Northwest could experience "The Big One" in our lifetime.
