  1. Well, the earthquakes definitely have slowed down. Some days there are none over magnitude 4. But aftershocks could continue for up to 10 years they say. After all, the 3/11 quake was magnitude 9. I’m not sure if yesterday’s was really an aftershock though, because the epicenter was so different. doug
