Do Small & Large Earthquakes Start The Same?

This actually made sense to me....yes kinda scary but it did! 8-)
Small and large earthquakes can have similar starts
A long-standing question in seismology is whether small and large earthquakes have similar or different onsets. An analysis of earthquakes around Japan shows that, in some cases, these onsets are almost identical.
