The South Hyogo Pref Earthquake, also known as the Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake, occurred on January 17, 1995, but abnormal air temperature changes were observed on January 3 and 4, fourteen days prior to the earthquake. Normally, the air temperature drops steadily through the night, but from 6 pm January 3 through 12 pm January 4, the air temperature steadily increased. There is a possibility that this phenomenon was a forewarning of the Great Hanshin Earthquake.
