Faults typically do stay active. A little activity all the time is usually better than nothing for a long time.

In reality "the big one" could happen in the next ten seconds, or it could happen 500 years from now. In geologic time both of them are barely a blink.

You can bring up the tremor map like DutchSinse does on his videos. It the show the tremor map of the Juan De Fuca Plate.

The magnitude is less than a 2.0 but you see the movement from Vancouver Island, Washington, Oregon, and Northern California. You can select by date.

Hike into Cape Lookout and view the splash line caused by the Cascadia event...clear to see, full on scrub line 90' up the face of the vertical rocky cliff above the beach. Mind you, that's not caused by a wave, it's caused by the entire ocean being lifted up and surging east....happens again, say goodby to every coastal neighborhood not on a high hill for miles inland.

A swarm of approximately 100 went off on the south flank of Mt. Hood yesterday. Largest was only 2.7, and all were deep. The graphic looked like someone shot a map of the Southwest side of Hood with a shotgun...
I actually vetoed my daughters ski trip today because of that. Mt Hood is expected to blow laterally. Last eruption was in late 1700s. It’s coming due, and I didn’t like the full choke pattern.

We’re really worried about a theoretical earthquake at this point?
Worried, not so much. Interested, yes, most definitely.
Local emergency management is very concerned about a Cascadia subduction zone earthquake that is supposedly imminent and earthquakes, especially swarms of earthquakes may be indicators of something greater.
If seismic activity bores you, perhaps you should consider following another thread.
