"Astronomer tips major Tokyo quake
Monday, September 15, 2003 Posted: 0527 GMT ( 1:27 PM HKT)

TOKYO, Japan (AP) -- A Japanese researcher is causing a stir in Tokyo with a prediction based on his study of radio waves that a major destructive earthquake is highly likely to hit the city this week.

Yoshio Kushida, a well-known self-taught astronomer who runs his own observatory just outside Tokyo, published on its Internet site his prediction that a quake with a magnitude of "7" or greater was likely to strike the metropolitan area on Tuesday or Wednesday. "

apparently people have predicted earthquakes like this before.

I guess only time will tell. Can you imagine how you'd feel though? I mean, if you believed these predictions were correct, and were living there in Tokyo... that would be enough for me to take some short-notice leave of absence! Head for the hills!!

Well I doubt there will be one but who knows. We will just have to wait and see.

well he was kinda right.

TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) -- An earthquake measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale rocked Tokyo and surrounding areas on Saturday, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

maybe this will pave the way for the prediction of earthquakes

Interesting stuff,

seeing more stories about new and unusual methods of detecting these events.

one story talked about observing cock roaches acting crazy due to slight magnetic disturbances related to major techtonic activity.
