It is the most arduous and challenging task to observe and record the geological coordinates of earthquake precursor locations and the corresponding epicenter zones, in Indonesia - the largest archipelago in the world and Caribbean regions. For the convenience of observational earthquake prediction study, active seismological regions of Indonesia have been divided into 10 major epicenter zones- Northern Sumatra, Southern Sumatra, Sunda Strait, Jawa, Kalimantan, Northern Sulawesi, Southern Sulawesi, Maluku and Irian Jaya, Papua and Nusatenggara. Indonesia is in the Indian and Pacific Ocean, whereas the Caribbean regions are in the Atlantic Ocean side, though they are in three entirely different regions but all the seismically active regions are having the same generation process of all form of atmospheric weather and earthquakes, is the most significant findings in this observation study since 1985. This wonderful observation study over 35 years confirms strongly confirms the strong generational process scientific relation between atmospheric weather and seismic anomalies. Observational data for different Ocean regions simply identifies the impending earthquake locations based on rainfall locations.

From ancient times to modern times, earthquakes have been the leading cause of death from natural disasters and have imposed dramatic cultural, economic, and political impacts on society. Most quakes are small. As many as 500,000 detectable earthquakes occur each year. Nearly 100,000 of them are strong enough to be felt, and only about 100 of them cause damage. They usually occur in the upper 10 miles or so of the Earth’s crust, and they’re concentrated along the boundaries where tectonic plates meet.
