I made an error of sorts in following the N Philippine Basin M5.6 earthquake aftershocks, missing 90 of them in the series, now causing the total
number of to all but double.
It wasn't until I clicked on one of the icons on the daiy Japan map in the group that I realized SHIKOKU BASIN (another JMA region) is also part of
the series, the border of the two regions must run through the center of the series, I had only been processing "N PHILIPPINE BASIN"
So I have updated the page with those and changed the name to
N Philippine/Shikoku Basins M5.6 a/s 5-19Jan 2016
Energy wise the brunt is being bourne by the Philippine Basin in the west, the largest of the 90 quakes in the Shikoku Basin to the east so far are
3.5 and 3.3
the maps screenshots below show;
1 by magnitude (now including the Shikoku ones too)
2. the two regions (Orange is N Philippine Basin, Magenta is Shikoku Basin)
