People are saying this is the Cascadia Fault line, but I disagree I think its on the Mendocino Fracture Zone,

We will learn more as time passes.

Either way its a Zone capable of 9.o EQ's and Long overdue for a Big Shake.

Very shallow EQ, no one on Land is saying they felt anything.

The Mendocino Fault is a Triple Junction. Its a point where Three Tectonic Plates meet. Which means the other Fault lines absorb some of the shaking.
