How the heck do they get 7.0Mw from what is basically a 6.0mb quake
EMSC is 6.8Mw using the same source of data (NEIC)
Geofon is 6.7 Unk Mag
on the other hand
Aussie gets 7.1 Unk Mag

Universities, communities, and landowners across the United States are playing hosts to an earthquake grid, connected by the Internet, that gathers, analyzes, and transmits data about seismic activity at hundreds of sites. The USArray research project is funded by the federal National Science Foundation (NSF) and is part of the larger foundation project, EarthScope. The two projects, which are associated with each other, are meant to help assess and reduce risks in areas of high seismic activity and get us closer to predicting earthquakes.

Looks very clean to me and shows what looks to be at least one clear aftershock, at 1:21 UTC.
