An astronomer in Japan is causing a stir with a prediction of an impending
major earthquake in the Tokyo area. The prediction, first posted on Internet
web sites, has some Japanese making preparations for an imminent disaster.

Although officials and scientists say no present technology can predict
earthquakes, some Japanese are heeding the prediction made by Yoshio
Kushida. The self-taught astronomer turned earthquake forecaster says he has
developed a way to predict the timing and intensity of tremors by monitoring
very high frequency radio waves.
