I was looking at the RSOE EDIS live Hazard map today and well we are still seeing a lot activity within the area the 7.1 magnitude earthquake occurred. This one area has more seismic activity that the rest of the country. Most of what is shown in the images below occurred from 7/10/2019-7/11/2019. Granted most of the quakes range from 2-3 in magnitude.

Yep, will be having aftershocks for months. Even up to a high M5 or low M6 is still a possibility.

I read somewhere, can't remember the source, it could go on for years.

Yeah, it depends on the size of the quake.

The M9.1 that happened on Japan is still producing aftershocks all these years later.


Aftershocks are earthquakes that follow the largest shock of an earthquake sequence. They are smaller than the mainshock and within 1-2 fault lengths distance from the mainshock fault. Aftershocks can continue over a period of weeks, months, or years.

The 7.2 in Alaska on Nov. 30 was still producing 5+ M aftershocks until mid-January. I got tired of reporting them all, lol, so tailed off.



It depends on where the earthquakes occur as to whether or not it is considered an aftershock. And this is kind of strange because the quakes are usually reversed, large one first, then small, but this was the other way around. They say that the 24 hours following a large quake is when you can have an even larger one. Which seems like that is what happened in California. As time progresses, the odds start dropping that an equal or larger aftershock will follow.

We haven't had any major aftershocks since the start of the year (I predicted one by Easter but nothing happened thus I have not been hired as a prophet!). I expect 3 months or so of major movement (4, 5 M-ish) for CA but who knows? I don't think this was a slip-fault quake like ours was.

And as with the entire Planet Earth continue to have seismic activity for millions of years till the planet expires.

Yes, but they are so localized. I know we have earthquakes, but the just so clustered in one spot compared to the other quakes going on.
