Several earthquakes occurred off the coast of Oregon on Monday, but no tsunamis, according to officials, were triggered.

At 12:52 in the morning, a 5.8 earthquake was felt. and a 5.5 hit occurred at 4:46 in the morning. Monday early. At 7:46 a.m., a third quake with a magnitude of 4.4 struck.

There were two earthquakes on Monday night, both measuring 3.9 and 4.2.

America's Paul Caruso According to the Geological Survey, the earthquakes occurred on a fault west of the coasts of Oregon and Washington. They were 288 miles from Coos Bay, Oregon, and roughly 330 miles west of Salem.

Caruso claims that they were just six miles deep, which is a small depth. The less likely it is that individuals will feel an earthquake, according to him. Due to its depth of 420 miles, the recent magnitude 7.8 earthquake that hit Japan caused little destruction.

The quakes, according to Caruso, were not strong enough to cause tsunamis. He claims that typically, it takes a magnitude 7 to cause that.
