The earthquake was centered about 170 kilometers northeast of Bucharest. It killed 1,500, injured about 10,500, and caused extensive damage in Bucharest and other parts of Romania. Bulgaria reported 20 killed and 165 injured. Some injuries and damage were reported in Yugoslavia. Moscow reported some damage in the Soviet Republic of Moldavia. This shock was felt from Rome to Moscow and from Turkey to Finland.

See. I told you it was radon. Someone find an article about that Italian guy who predict a quake using radon.
A little over a week ago, a scientist little known in earthquake circles made a bold prediction of a destructive earthquake around the small town of Sulmona, Italy, based on readings of radon gas. Giampaolo Giuliani went so far as to tell the mayor of Sulmona that it would strike within the next 24 hours. The deadline passed, and nothing happened.
Then, early Tuesday, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck about 35 miles away, near the town of L’aquila, sparking a controversy in Italy and around the world about whether Guiliani actually predicted the temblor. That prediction is the latest twist in the maddening scientific quest to predict earthquakes.

Hi muzzy, good work there. What actually need to do to prove of disprove the subduction bit is to take a very narrow band, in the case of longitude (?). Say you think the subduction zone is south of crete
You would take all the quakes that fall directly on E25, or within a very narrow margin, and then all within the latitudes you want, say 33N to 38N
Sorry that should have been 38N. In essence exactly what you are doing but on a narrow band. Ideally you should do this for the right angle but I am afraid my maths is not up to calculating if something is on a line or not. Way too complicated and way too much effort.
That selection (using 38N) gives data from 01/01/2010 as follows:
2010-06-22T10:54:23.000Z,36.09000,25.14000,3.0000,15.0000,DODECANESE ISLANDS GREECE
2010-06-21T05:06:37.000Z,36.12000,25.13000,3.4000,15.0000,DODECANESE ISLANDS GREECE
Visually I would say there is no zone on that particular line.
Why am i looking at Santorini dead centre on this map,, please
