According to Seismology, extreme earthquakes usually produce aftershocks around its epicenter, which are smaller earthquakes that occur in the same general area as the main shock. They are caused by the readjustment of the earth’s crust after the main shock. The frequency of aftershocks decreases with time, but they can continue for days, weeks, or even months after the main shock (USGS).
