I wouldn't give it too much notice, although it is in the general area (278km)
the prediction was from Monday, January 7, 2013 - December 2014
almost 2 years span
its 1,344,028 TTNT(M7.3) versus 15,080,242 TTNT(M8.0)
lets not hope its not a foreshock,
the 6.0 aftershock was quite a long way from the 7.3 (362.6km)which might mean this is a major fault about to break
plenty of history there (497 quakes above M5.5 since 1990)
goo.gl... (link good till Feb 2015 ........ apparently)
