Aftershocks in Japan Continue: Update 4/29/11 with Map

Aftershocks from Japan’s great earthquake continue at a regular pace. It’s been a while since we’ve taken a look at them, so I’ve got a list of the aftershocks in just the past couple of days for you below. As you can see, one of them was a 5.8 magnitude, which is a serious quake, but not enough to trigger another tsunami. Here is the list with a link to the USGS, where you can go to see the longer list of shocks in Asia and the Aleutians. I’ve also included a map for you. The map shows that most of the aftershocks have occurred off the northeast coast of Japan, but you’ll notice that a rather sizable shock has occurred just north of Tokyo as well.
