Quake was aftershock of magnitude 7.8 quake in July

According to detailed calculations of USGS, yesterday's magnitude 7.5 quake was a large aftershock of the M 7.8 quake on 22 July earlier this year.
Tectonic summary (USGS):
The earthquake occurred as the result of strike-slip faulting near the subduction zone interface between the Pacific and North America plates, either within the upper (North America) Plate or within the downgoing (Pacific) slab.
The preliminary focal mechanism solution indicates rupture occurred on either a moderately dipping right-lateral strike-slip fault striking towards the NNW or on a steeply dipping left-lateral strike-slip fault striking towards the east, and therefore that this earthquake was not a thrust event on the plate interface itself.
At the location of this event, the Pacific plate converges with North America to the northwest at a rate of about 64 mm/yr, subducting at the Alaska-Aleutian Trench 100 km to the southeast of the earthquake.
Update Mon, 19 Oct 2020, 22:48

No major damage expected

The quake follows the massive 7.8 quake, which hit the same area on 22 July earlier this year, but didn't cause significant damage, mainly due to the extremely low density of population.
Therefore, we don't expect any major damages from this quake either, although a report mentions that some buildings collapsed in Unga, a small settlement about two miles west of Sand Point.
