50 Faults Added To Cal/Mexico Maps

“The California Geological survey added 50 new and previously known faults to its fault activity maps.” That’s not the real news, but buried down toward the bottom of the article is this sentence:

The Mexicali quake has produced thousands of aftershocks, and earthquake scientists are working to figure why it has mysteriously produced many more aftershocks of 4.0 magnitude or greater than the number that normally follow a large quake, officials said.

Just within the last two days the California/Mexico border area has produced one 4.4 quake and a number of 3+ quakes.
