Predictions of earthquakes registering over M5, Seismic Intensity 4: Until Jan. 5, 2018
We will publish some parts.



Based on the current “crustal movements, water level observations, and earthquake occurrence situations”, there is no possibility that an earthquake with Max SI6 or more will occur this week.


■M6: Eastern offshore of Hokkaido (SI2)
  • There is a possibility of a M6 class earthquake to occur south off Etorofu Island before Jan.5.

■M6: Fukushima – Ibaraki (SI4), Iwate – Miyagi (SI3)
  • The possibility of a M6 earthquake to occur before Jan.5 is very high.

■M5: Around Tanegashima (Hyuganada – Amami Islands, Max SI3)
  • Possibility of “M5, Max SI3” level earthquake in the surrounding waters is very high.
