The spatio-temporal patterns of the seismicity are shown. The earthquake occurrence is connected to the strain rate on the basis of Kostrov (1974) equation. It is shown that in the Pannonian Basin the seismic rates are 10-7-10-6. This values were derived from the local earthquake catalogues of the area of Komárom, Dunaharaszti (near Budapest) and Kecskemét.  It is shown that the earthquake occurrence in Hungary  has a well expressed diurnal periodicity.  Similar phenomenon was detected in the case of earthquakes of all Europe and in Turkey in case of weak (ML = 3.0) seismic events.
