what's normal for earthquake aftershocks?
I see that Chile has continued to be hit with 3-5x magnitude quakes every 30 minutes or so, consistently, since the big 8.3 quake. In the past two hours, there have been 8 quakes, five 3x and three quakes at 4.0, 4.3, and 4.7.

is this normal after a 8.3 that was, what, a week ago?

or is this a sign of something else to come?

thanks in advance for any insight

Glad to see someone is questioning this phenomena...seems quite strange. Something is going on. Experts out there?

It is normal,2011 japanese earthquake had 5000+ aftershocks.

However, it is impossible to know whatever that last big Chile earthquake was an aftershock or not, that part produced 9+ earthquake in the past and can do so now again

I am not sure, but for reference:

They say there were thousands of after shocks (3-6 magnitude) after the Japan quake in 2011. I'm not entirely sure how long after this persisted, Bender.


I think we should most definitely be keeping an eye on these quakes.

There's no doubt it could be foreshadowing to more BIG quake activity.
