Interesting aftershock to the M8 Santa Cruz Isles earthquake

Here is an aftershock that appears to be past the end of the subduction zone. The people who work in this region have not extended the subduction zone this far. I look forward to seeing the focal mechanism for this earthquake to see if it has a transform mechanism.
