Earthquake weather?

For many years there have been suggestions that earthquakes occur more often during warm, still, humid weather. This observation is anecdotal and has no basis in science. International records show that earthquake occurrence is spread over all weather conditions, during all seasons of the year, and during both day and night. Scientists have examined the "earthquake weather" proposition many times and have been unable to find a link between weather and earthquakes.
