Earthquakes are a reality in the Pacific Northwest. At least four faults capable of producing earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 7 pass beneath the Portland area. Off the Oregon coast is the Cascadia Fault, which produces megathrust earthquakes exceeding magnitude 9 or greater. Cascadia Fault earthquakes occur on average of every 300-600 years - it has been 300 years since the last one.
