You've been noting its not in isolation we're seeing all this, right? If it's a plate in the sense I recall from my classes a lifetime and childhood ago, then stress relieved in one area is stress transferred to another, isn't it?

This is interesting. These could either be an indicator of a larger quake in the future or they could also indicate that the tension is corrected. I would say that there may be more midsize quakes on both sides myself or a bunch of smaller quakes along the plate boundries.
