Monday morning at 6:15AM PST a 3.1 magnitude earthquake rattled the North Portland area beneath Kelly Point Park where the Willamette River joins the Columbia River. The quake occured at a depth of 11.8 miles. No reports of damage. If you felt the quake you are encourage to report it to http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/dyfi/.
Last Friday morning at 5:19AM PST another quake occured in the same area beneath the Columbia Slough.
Scientist say these type of earthquakes are the best type of quake to have -- small and frequent; allowing local faults to gently release pent-up energy.
