Daquipa said residents should brace themselves as aftershocks
to hit the city and nearby towns in the coming days could be a lot stronger than the 5.9 in magnitude.
Rattled residents of Southern California are bracing for a huge aftershock
after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake violently shook the area at 10:33 a.m.
Director of the CWB Seismological Center, Chen Kuo-chang, pointed out that generally after a powerful quake such as the one that occurred yesterday, it usually marks a turning point, after which aftershocks
will occur, but will gradually trail off.
"It was the 82nd aftershock
(of the November quake) and there were no reports of casualties or property damage," he said.
A 4.4 magnitude aftershock
was followed by a 4.6 shock 16 minutes later.
Obtained results indicate that isolators can not only reduce the structural deformation significantly but also prevent strong aftershocks
from causing more permanent deformation to the structure.
The acceleration of the model during the mainshock was larger than that during the aftershocks
. The maximum horizontal acceleration at the top of the model in the mainshock and the first aftershock
was 0.92 g and 0.67 g, respectively, that is, a 27% difference.
He said as many as 27 'aftershocks
' of that earthquake somehow shook Islamabad in a month.
