Exploring E Turkey: Rainfall Precursor Predicts 100% Earthquake in a Consistent Manner in Just 2 Weeks


Rainfall event is the very specific, reliable unambiguous precursor for the earthquake event. Over the years scientists have hunted for some signal—a precursory sign, however faint—that would allow forecasters to pin-point exactly where and when the big ones will hit. After decades spent searching in vain, many seismologists now doubt whether such a signal even exists. But in a great surprise to everyone, from an ordinary lay man to eminent scientists, 100% earthquakes occur after rainfalls! Though I have the findings for the entire regions of the world, here E Turkey are the region for submission for the period Jan-November, 2012 to study the strong correlation and show the strong evidence to prove that the 100% earthquakes after rainfall in a consistence manner. Anyone can very easily verify the validity of the findings for any forthcoming earthquakes for any regions of E Turkey in just two weeks of period. Nature does not give two different results for the same phenomena, for two different observers. Though there exists a very strong relation between the rainfalls and the earthquakes, scientists and seismologists have not been able to detect and identify this rainfall precursory signal for hundreds of years that consistently occurs before earthquakes. The methodology of rainfall event before earthquakes, even works consistently for earthquake prediction purpose, especially in any regions of the world. Rainfall type precursor is the best approach to predict specific earthquakes, which provide the potential for estimating the epicenter and magnitude of any moderate to strong earthquakes. Earthquakes are more likely when there is rain than it is not. The magnitudes of a resulting individual earthquake depend on the severity of the weather changes. However, in a very few cases the time scales and magnitude do vary substantially as a consequence of local site geology and other factors.
