The U.S. Geological Survey reports the pair of earthquakes struck late Sunday and early Monday.

The first shaker hit a 4.9 and was recorded at 7:30pm about 150 miles west of Coos Bay and was pegged at about six miles below the seafloor.

The second shaker was a magnitude 4.8 and was recorded just after 2am this morning. The USGS says the second quake occurred fairly close to the first one, about 120 miles southwest of Coos Bay but more than twice as deep which denotes Cascadia Subduction Zone activity.
