How come every time a medium sized earthquake hits someone calls "foreshock"

This is not a medium sized earthquake(teleseismic moment magnitude) and that area is a very active one.

Yes you are right could cause extended damage,but fortunately this one was offshore and the depth was in in line with the magnitude ,as as not to cause tsunami or to be hardly felt inland.
