No, earthquakes cannot be accurately predicted. Despite advances in seismic detection and forecasting techniques, predicting earthquakes with a high degree of accuracy is still impossible.
There are now methods to detect possible signs of impending earthquakes, as well as statistical models to estimate the potential frequency of future earthquakes in an area. However, the data used to make predictions is often too limited to make any definitive statements about an earthquake’s timing or severity.
