We detected the excitations of Free Core Nutation (FCN) of the Earth direct
ly from the analysis of the Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) observ
ation for the period 1979.9-2000.1. During the period, the FCN had 4 signif
icant excitations at 1989.90, 1994.47, 1994.76, and 1998.99 where the timin
g uncertainty is 0.40 year. These epochs coincide with the occurrence of 4
of 5 huge (Mw greater than or equal to 8.0) earthquakes within the same unc
ertainty. The probability of the coincidence by happenings is as quite low
as 2 x 10(-5).
