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 Many people will pay with their lives for this outdated belief.”
ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL EARTHQUAKE AND VOLCANO PREDICTION CENTER
The International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center (IEVPC) was founded in February 2012 by a team of scientists and other experts with established track records for excellence in science research, especially tectonics, volcanism, seismic research, management, and other skills necessary for achieving the Mission and Objectives of the IEVPC. This team originated after its founders realized that there were strong correlations between the occurrences of earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic activity, solar activity, and precursor geophysical events.
These precursors have been studied for many years by the IEVPC founders, staff scientists and researchers who represent the primary body of expertise in understanding these early signals that catastrophic geophysical events (CGE) are about to strike.
In other words, they determined that through an understanding of events leading up to these geological hazards, that they could gteatly improve the predictive capability for earthquakes. Further, it has been shown that a combination of the leading-edge technology employed by the IEVPC science team can lead to a substantial improvement in the lead time from precursor signal detection to the actual CGE event transpiring.
In December 2012 the IEVPC concluded its highly successful initial earthquake prediction test program during which it validated its process for improving detection of major earthquakes for multiple types of quakes in various locations.
In July 2015, completed it’s second highly successful earthquake prediction test program.
