Cascadia subduction zone is over due for major quake (meaning 7+ in size).

Apparently there were at least 45 earthquakes of various sizes yesterday along the fault lines in the Pacific...from southern California, Alaska, Hawaii...the last one being the 4.8 registered in BC.
Most were very small, from 2.2 to 4.0...with several registering above 5.0.

I admittedly do not follow seismic activity, just happened to follow a link on my FB feed after the Victoria quake.
So...are this many events in one day usual ?

Yearly there can be few million quakes worldwide (most are very small), 7.0 to 9.0 are rare but can happen at any moment. Scary part with no warning

Lots of smaller earthquakes lately. I read that small earthquakes do not necessarily mean taking the pressure off to prevent a larger one from happening.
