[MIS04-P01] Predict the 2016 Kumamoto M7.3 earthquake with satellite clouds data

Keywords:Kumamoto Earthquake, Satellite Clouds Data

Clouds are usually considered as weather phenomenon, while in recent years some reports were published that unusual clouds appeared before strong quakes, and they could be used to predict earthquake. In March 2016, we observed some anomalous clouds over Japan and predict that a M5.8-M6.8 quake will hit east Japan, and the possible date is April 14. This information was published on Researchgate in advance. On April 14 a M6.5 quake hit west Japan and on April 16 a M7.3 quake happened. These facts proved our prediction, and in this paper why the predicted location is wrong is discussed. The predictions about Afghanistan quake and Myanmar quakes which happened in April 2016 are also introduced. Our analysis show that the three consecutive successful predictions are not by coincidence.
