Virginia earthquake - normal aftershock

Less exciting for me is that this whole area has a history of random M6's going off, and nothing ever happens again.  Boring!  This M3.1 is just at the edge of the action zone, and is generally expected.  There's this weird N-S trend but some of that might be poor earthquake locations.  More exciting would be a trend towards the lake, anything to indicate that this isn't just a locked up mechanism.  Much more fun is the general trend for New Madrid to expand, and also the Charleston earthquake mechanism.  :)
