Major Earthquakes Predicted Months in Advance

The International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center (IEVPC) announces today that it has once again, successfully predicted catastrophic earthquakes months in advance.

Based on its unique methodology and a set of precursors for earthquake prediction, the IEVPC posted quake warnings months ago for New Zealand and the Kamchatka peninsula, off Siberia. In each case, the IEVPC correctly predicted both earthquakes with near 100% accuracy, in terms of the four critical parameters of time frame, location or epicenter, depth, and magnitude.

The first warning was for an earthquake just off the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russian Siberia, and was posted January 25, 2017. The quake was expected to be at a magnitude of >M7.0 at less than 40 km depth, offshore of Kamchatka during 2017. The actual quake occurred on July 17, 2017 at a depth of 15km and magnitude of M7.7 off shore of Kamchatka.

The second earthquake warning was for one along the Alpine Fault of New Zealand. The original earthquake warning was extended thru July 2017 because of continuing strong precursor signals until it struck on July 17, 2017. The quake hit the Alpine fault near New Zealand’s Auckland Islands. At a magnitude of M 6.6 it was within the predicted range of M7.0 +/- 0.5 and had a depth of 10km where the predicted depth range was 10-30 km.

The IEVPC is made up of seismology experts from around the world and has as its mission, the saving of lives through advanced notification of catastrophic earthquakes. Since its formation in February 2012, the IEVPC has conducted two long duration test programs and is now in a regular period of quake signal observation. As a result of numerous correctly predicted catastrophic earthquakes, the IEVPC has contacted the US government, the insurance industry, and other science organizations in an attempt to end the longstanding myth that earthquakes cannot be predicted.

According to Dr. Dong Choi, Director of Research at the IEVPC, “We have shown repeatedly over the last five years that major earthquakes can be predicted well in advance of their occurrence. It is still surprising that so many of the world’s leaders, especially in the United States, are still following the obviously false belief that earthquakes cannot be predicted. Many people will pay with their lives for this outdated belief.”
