Interesting, that would be the first 6.0+ they've had in almost 2 weeks.

happened after the Alaska

Magnitude mb 6.0
Region ALASKA PENINSULA
Date time 2011-05-05 14:13:01.0 UTC
Location 55.19 N ; 160.58 W
Depth 40 km
Distances 941 km SW Anchorage (pop 276,263 ; local time 06:13:01.7 2011-05-05)
1284 km SW College (pop 11,413 ; local time 06:13:01.7 2011-05-05)

That means the Alaska, Just like the Kuril shook things up during the 9.1 has shaken Japan somewhat. Same Plate and all.

Yuppers, almost 2 weeks since the last 6.0 or over in Japan.

MAP  6.0   2011/04/23 10:12:49    39.164    142.892  38.9   NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN

They have had many 6.0 and over aftershocks/quakes since the big one and several leading up to it. They don't seem to get tsunamis until they get one over 7.0 though. I have been tracking the USGS 7 day list for a couple of years now. Here is a snapshot from my Excel file for the time period just before and after the 8.9 big one that did all the damage...

BTW - I will be putting my entire excel file on my website at www.dbic-inc.com... - It will be on the non business related upload page.

I think your list is out of date. That was upgraded to a 9.0 ages ago.

The data in the list is as it was posted on the USGS site at the time of the quake. I forgot to change it later when it was updated. I will do so now that you have reminded me of it. I did know that it was upgraded. Many quakes are posted in near real time on the USGS site and then later up or down graded.

the changes won't show in the copy of the file on my website until the weekend since I want to do more catchup with the data before I reload it to my site.

It's hardly surprising - it's an aftershock and they will continue to get them for months, maybe years, to come.

The high mag of the mainshock means they will get high mag aftershocks. Our 7.1 NZ quake in Sept generated a 6.3 6 months on....
