The only successful Earthquake prediction in history. Which country? Guess.

  1. In the aftermath of the Japanese quake, I was reading the news and found the answer. Believe it or not, it is................ China.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The 1975 Haicheng earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter Scale occurred at 19:36 CST on February 4, 1975 in Haicheng, Liaoning, China, a city that at the time had approximately 1 million residents.

    Seismologists sent out warnings about this earthquake a day before it took place and ordered evacuations. This successful prediction saved many lives.

    This was the first and the only successful earthquake prediction in history.

    "It was the foreshock sequence that gave (Chinese officials) the solid prediction."

    not that once[1 time]makes a prediction.

    Mr Bill Eckhardt again noted in FUTURES mag[stocks, options futures...]some important PRACTICAL profitable differences of not confusing predictions with profit, or predictions with probibiities..................................................

    As far as an earthquake prediction;
    thanks for bringing up the subject.The Bible compares earthquakes with a womans labor pains-they increse in intensity & frequency......

    By the way Japan had a strength 6-7 earthquake a few days earlier and they usually come in pairs...
