I believe this is the 6th earthquake to occur there over a 5.0 magnitude. Plates must still be shifting.

Are you serious? I heard the aftershocks were averaging 6.0+ once the earthquake has hit! It's pretty crazy!

I'm very curious. Looking for more sources and/or explaination of weeks of aftershocks.

I'm sorry but your belief is wrong.
Check this link: earthquake.usgs.gov...
You can easily see there has been a lot more than 6 earthquakes above 5.0

Unless i entirely read that wrong.

And aftershocks can last years after the initial earthquake.
