Picture 1: Location of the magnitude 5.3 earthquake in Izu Islands, Japan.

The earthquake occurred in a region that has been under the influence of strongly active and potentially dangerous tectonic waves (D-waves). We forecasted heightened seismic activities in specific regions, including the Izu Islands, as 4 D-waves (potentially dangerous) were spreading their influence across various regions. We reported on it on February 21, 2024. The post is available here.
