An aftershock is a smaller earthquake that occurs after the main shock of a large earthquake. Usually of lesser magnitude than the main earthquake, an aftershock will occur in the same place as the major earlier earthquake. An aftershock can be dangerous as it is usually unpredictable and can collapse buildings that are damaged from the main shock.
