%X M8 algorithm is a well-known method for intermediate-term earthquake prediction. The predicted area by M8 algorithm includes relatively extensive territory. Since earthquakes occur in places where enough potential for accumulating stress exists, by limiting the predicted area to them, spatial uncertainty of M8 algorithm can be reduced. In this work, at first, we tested this method for the Rudbar and Bam earthquakes as M8 algorithm could predict them well. Then, areas of forward (future) earthquake prediction by M8 algorithm were tested by this method. The results show considerable reduction of predicted area using potential earthquake sources.
