    Prediction of exact timing and location of earthquake is not possible yet. Scientists can only predict the possibility of earthquake. There are many seismic stations which are continuously working , these stations observe the seismic wave pattern and if there is a change in seismic wave velocity occurs then there are chances of earthquake. Sometime change in ground water level also helpful for the prediction of earthquake. Earthquake generally occurs in the area which are near to any active plate tectonic boundary like in India regions near the Himalayan are earthquake prone areas. So most of the seismic station are located in these area which are continuously observing the seismic activity of these areas which are helpful to do prediction about upcoming earthquake.
