It wasn’t that bad!
It was the length that started to worry me a bit.
Compared to 9 minutes of shaking like in 2011 Tohoku quake, we got off easy!
You never really know how long a minute is until the earth won’t sit still beneath your feet!
Our detailed aftershock forecast
The USGS estimates the chance of more aftershocks as follows: Within the next 1 Week until 2018-12-07 18:20:26 (UTC):
The chance of an earthquake of magnitude 3 or higher is > 99 %, and it is most likely that as few as 20 or as many as 2,200 such earthquakes may occur in the case that the sequence is re-invigorated by a larger aftershock.
The chance of an earthquake of magnitude 5 or higher is 78 %, and it is most likely that as few as 0 or as many as 23 such earthquakes may occur.
The chance of an earthquake of magnitude 6 or higher is 27 %, and it is most likely that as few as 0 or as many as 3 such earthquakes may occur.
The chance of an earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher is 4 %, such an earthquake is possible but with a low probability.

Anyone else find it funny that someone recently posted about beached whales and earthquakes in the Madagascar swarm thread and saying that some whales had recently beaches themselves, has me pretty intrigued.
