6.8 Santa Cruz Islands


http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquak...usc000f40j.php
7.0 Santa Cruz Islands


Frequency and magnitude kinda hard to call 'em "aftershocks". Plus dozens of 4s, 5s, etc.

It is an odd pattern of aftershocks. The 7.0 occured at a depth of 27km right around the subduction zone depth like the 8.0, another one was at 56km. Normally the aftershocks occur much closer to the surface. The Pacific and Indo Australian plates are doing some serious rearranging at the moment, and I feel like there might be more to come.

Sounds like some pre-volcanic stuff, maybe. (There are huge steam vents near Kilauea on Hawaii and near Lassen in California and other geo-active sites.)
