Three‐dimensional dynamic rupture simulations across interacting faults: The 7.0, 2010, Haiti earthquake. However, the lack of agreement between of the main shock and the aftershock mechanisms suggests that few of the aftershocks occurred on the main shock slip plane. Small Bodies, Solar Systems Coseismic stress changes induced by the 1989 Loma Prieta, California Earthquake. The moment magnitude was recorded at 6.9, and a surface wave magnitude of 7.1 was recorded after consultation with monitoring stations around the world. Spatial distribution of atypical aftershocks of the 1995 Hyogo-ken Nanbu earthquake. Yet it did a lot of damage up here in the Bay Area, with collapsed buildings, collapsed Nimitz Freeway. If the stress drop for the main shock relieved most of the tectonic stress, the mechanisms could reflect the heterogeneity of the near‐field stress redistribution.

Alternatively the variety of the aftershock mechanisms may reflect deformation by block motion within a narrow zone adjacent to the main shock rupture plane. It’s a distinction that speaks less to extraordinary power in the case of Loma Prieta than to gaps in earthquake preparedness, hazard mapping and building codes – and to the extreme rarity of large earthquakes.
