Not many aftershocks

I have noticed there are very few aftershocks from the Kaikoura quake.
Isn't this unusual?

Nothing is 'Usual' when it's about earthquakes.

This part of the above article is a bit scary
'We have the Pacific Plate diving under the North Island under the Australian Plate, and this quake happened pretty much at the southernmost part of that Pacific Plate's subduction.'

Not for a quake as deep as that one (50km). They don't tend to have as many as shallower ones, apparently.

Oh, interesting. I was just thinking it was unusual we'd not had a larger one.
