Advocate: I have to say I think maybe technology will never be able to predict natural disasters.


@: When it comes to volcano, the Volcano Disaster Assistance Program (VDAP) predicted a pending eruption and saved tens of thousands of lives before. But also the VDAP monitoring system predicted an eruption that failed to occur and then the volcano suddenly exploded two years later.

A: As for earthquake, the precision of earthquake prediction is still eluding the scientists.
