Random Geological Geekery

USGS lists that half an hour after the initial 9.0 shock there was a 7.9 'quake, followed ten minutes later by a 7.1. I'm wondering if the two large shocks so soon after the initial one contributed to the severity of the tsunami?

The frequency and severity of the aftershocks is coming down. But I bet folks in the area will be very glad once the ground Knocks It Off.
