Kavitha and Raghukanth (doi:10.1007/s40328-015-0131-7, 2015) have developed an algorithm to forecast earthquake energy for a given seismogenic zone. The forecasting strategy is based on empirical mode decomposition and nonlinear regression analysis. The proposed algorithm has been validated with independent subset of seismicity data. Wu (Acta Geod Geophys 2015) has raised concern about the uncertainties and the input seismicity data used to develop the model. This article discusses the problems associated with the modelling of the seismic energy at regional level.
