The two Oregon events occurred on the North side of the Blanco Fracture Zon=
(Blanco Transform), part of the Mendocino Triple Junction.  It is a highly
seismically active area already noted for frequent earthquakes.  A search o=
USGS records for the last 30 days revealed 17 events that preceded these tw=
events. =20
