4.5 Magnitude Earthquake off the Oregon Coast

YACHATS, Oregon (AP) – A 4.5 magnitude earthquake was reported off the Oregon Coast by the USGS.

There are no reports of injuries or any tsunami warnings in effect. Usually with earthquakes that are this deep there is not a great risk of large tsunamis or any at all. If there are any they will be small but still can be dangerous and a hazard for coastal beach goers.
