We can prepare for earthquakes, but we can't predict them

We can prepare for earthquakes, but we can't predict them...

Detailed Description

Note: HVO normally emails our weekly column, called Volcano Watch, on Thursdays and the Hawai`i Tribune-Herald publishes them in their Sunday edition. Because of the continuing aftershocks from the October 15 quakes and the false rumor being passed around regarding earthquake predictions, HVO scientists feel the need to share more information than usual. Last week's Volcano Watch dealt with aftershocks and what to expect and this one discusses earthquake prediction. We will resume our normal weekly schedule this Thursday.
