M6.2 Quake this Morning: A One-Off, or Prequel to the Next Big One?

M6.2 Off the Izu Coast
At 5:18 this morning, we were woken up by a fairly sizeable shake. With a magnitude of 6.2 at the epicentre and clocking in at around Shindo 4 in my area, it's the biggest one I've felt since the aftershocks of 3/11. It was a fairly long one, and until it peaked and flattened out, it felt like it might have grown into the next big one. It didn't, thankfully.
