4.9R in Taiwan <--As expected

TAIPEI: An earthquake of magnitude 4.9 shook parts of Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, on Monday (May 13), the island's Central Weather Bureau said.
The quake was centred in the northeastern county of Yilan, it added. There were no immediate reports of injuries or significant damage.
It comes nearly a month after a 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan's coastal city of Hualien, in what authorities said was the largest quake to hit Taiwan so far this year.
Seventeen people were injured in the Apr 18 earthquake, which shook buildings and temporarily halted metro services in Taipei.
One of those injured, a Malaysian tourist, subsequently died after he was hit by falling rocks while hiking in the island's Taroko Gorge National Park.
Below we see the Taiwan calendar of stressed days and we see there is a strong peak today. The epicenter was 13 km E of Yilan, Taiwan. Below also find the nearest stress point close to the epicentre from our software. Great prediction!
