Quake predictors or just quacks?

Breaking Earth News: Taiwan

Jan 16, 2007
Taipei (dpa) - Last month's earthquake off Taiwan that killed two people and injured 42 has revived a debate on earthquake prediction as several residents of the island claimed they had predicted it because they heard strange sounds or had chest pains. The most popular among these earthquake predictors is Li Chen-chi, 38, an insurance company manager who claims he can hear sounds before an earthquake occurs. Chen said that several days before the December 26 quake struck off Hengchun in southern Taiwan, he heard sounds like a ship's horn and radio jamming and he e-mailed his predictions to friends and Professor Chu Tzu-hau, a geologist at National Taiwan University.
