PORTLAND — The U.S. Geological Survey recorded a 4.3-magnitude earthquake Tuesday in the Pacific Ocean off the Oregon Coast.
The temblor struck about 125 miles west of Gold Beach. It occurred at a depth of 6.2 miles.
There have been no reports of injuries or damage.
Experts have said for years that Oregon and the Pacific Northwest are due for a major earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 or higher. Small quakes, like Tuesday’s, are fairly common.
