New Virginia Earthquake Aftershock

I have no faith in their location accuracy.  These are typical hanging-wall aftershocks, but I would think the trend should be more NE.  By the time they get in more instruments, it will probably be all over.  A length of 5-10 km is good for an M6.  Toronto has a length of 30 km which is good for an M7.

Actually, we have no access to accurate maps of the previous activity, so I have no idea of the size of the entire system.
