Outlook reports:
Almost all scientists agree that it is difficult to predict the exact time and place where a quake might strike. Yet, scientists at the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI), Hyderabad, have predicted that a 5.0 quake may occur at Koyna, in Maharashtra, by the end of December 2005.


Three Richter 8 quakes have also been predicted by some seismologists in the Himalayan region, which includes Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Nepal, UP, Bihar, Assam and Sikkim.
I have no idea how credible the business of forecasting earthquakes is, but let's assume for a moment that it is. So what can we do now?
