Slip model of today's M7.7 earthquake is indicating a maximum slip of over 20 meters, which is relatively high for an earthquake of this size. Also suggests mostly unilateral rupture towards the West, which agrees with the aftershock distribution.

EARTHQUAKE WATCH FOR NORTH & CENTRAL AMERICA WEST COAST Within the next 4-6 months I expect a significant earthquake along the west coast of Central America M6.0-M6.9 I'd like to note I have an EARTHQUAKE FORECAST on tweeter for the GREATER SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA in effect.

Is there a slip-magnitude relation table?

This is from an older paper by Wells and Coppersmith, 1994. There are likely more recent ones with more extensive datasets but this gives you an idea.

I’m only an erstwhile observer of seismic events but isn’t 20 meters a *huge* slip for a plate? Even the southern end of the San Andreas isn’t predicted to slip that far when the ‘big one’ hits....or am I wrong?🐬
