The second cluster started in 1959 and lasted about half and three years with three earthquakes. Till now only two strong earthquakes occurred in the third cluster, which started in 2003. The occurring times of the three clusters coincide with the second and fourth active periods and the subactive period of strong deep focal earthquakes, respectively. From Sec. 3, we know that epicenters of strong deep focal earthquakes in the second, fourth active, and the sub-active periods reached the northern end around 44◦ N.
