Damaging Magnitude 7.3 earthquake along the Iran-Iraq border was preceded by Magnitude 4.3 foreshock - temblor
A powerful, shallow earthquake struck along the Iraq-Iran border today. Damage is unfortunately heavy, with about 350 reported deaths, and numerous collapsed buildings. This was tragically demonstrated when the 2003 M=6.3 Bam, Iran, earthquake took ...
Refined space weather forecasts could predict impact at local level - Dr Lucile Turc - Horizon magazine
Understanding more about how solar storms interact with the outermost part of Earth's environment, known as the foreshock, could refine space weather forecasts to predict their effects at a local level and help protect vital technology, according to Dr ...
5.4-magnitude earthquake hits southern South Korea - 동아일보
Seven minutes after two foreshocks at 2:29 p.m., the main temblor with a magnitude of 5.4 hit about nine kilometers north of Pohang. Though it was weaker than the quake that hit Gyeongju, the epicenter was only nine kilometers deep and the shaking was ...

Deep M=6.9 earthquake in Guatemala possibly preceded by foreshock sequence - temblor
While not necessarily indicative of foreshock events, given they were over 100 km away, the rate at which they occurred is substantially higher than the normal background rate. Therefore, if they were foreshocks, they could indicate that a larger creep ...and more »
