LATEST Washington Coast Articles, Updates

Researchers track bursts of tremors beneath Seattle, West Coast
by By Zosha Millman, SeattlePI

Washington is, once again, on the move.

According to a recent update from the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, dozens of tremors have been recorded over the past few weeks that "continue to excite and confuse all of us tremor watchers."

The PNSN has been tracking a series of tremors along the West Coast, including throughout the Puget Sound region. And analysts believe it could be representative of a "significant slow slip."

A slow slip isn't quite as fearsome as it might sound ? in fact, it's fairly common; it's simply a wave of tiny tremors that are thought to increase stress on locked faults, the areas where tectonic plates cannot move past each other.

Construction disruption: 4-hour delays on U.S. 101 at Lake Crescent
by By Joel Connelly, SeattlePI

Traveling out to the northern Olympic Peninsula? Expect four-hour delays on U.S. 101 as it passes along the south shore of Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park. Also "regular half-hour delays" and "possible short delays" for one-way traffic after hours and on weekends.

Originally, the park and Federal Highway Administration were to do four-hour delays before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.

"Now, four-hour delays will extend to beyond Memorial Day so work on the rock wall can be completed and the final paving can occur on schedule." Spring is a peak season on the Washington Coast.
