Haicheng Earthquake of 1975

On February 4, 1975, an earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter Scale hit the city of Haicheng, which at the time had approximately 1 million residents. However, seismologists sent out warnings about this earthquake a day earlier and ordered evacuations (unusual animal behaviour also contributed to the successful evacuation 5 1/2 hours before the event). Because of this correct prediction, many lives were saved. This was the first successful earthquake prediction in history. Further aiding the prediction, cats and other animals are also said to have acted strangely in the days leading up to the earthquake. There are some questions as to the vailidity and accuracy of these reports, which are discussed in detail in the Haicheng Earthquake Prediction link below.
