Sandwich Islands Earthquake… mmmm

We just had a M 5.8 earthquake in the volcanic arc region of the Scotia subduction zone. The moment tensor (currently) shows an extensional mechanism. I will post more on this as I am about to hit the road. Here is the USGS web page for this earthquake.
Here is the map that I just put together. I have a number of posts about earthquakes in this region. I will add these links later tonight.
