A massive earthquake measuring more than 8.0 on Richter scale may hit some parts of the world between September 5 and 7. A self-proclaimed seismic researcher named Frank Hoogerbeets said: “Critical lunar geometry on the 30th may trigger seismic activity over 6 magnitude between the 30th and September 2nd, potentially peaking magnitude 7.” 

On his website, Ditrianum, Frank Hoogerbeets said: “Six additional planetary alignments between 2 and 5 September may trigger large seismic activity, potentially peaking high 7 to 8+ magnitude around September 5-7.” 

A low-intensity earthquake measuring 3.8 on Richter scale hit Rajasthan's Jhunjhunu district on Wednesday. No casualty or damage to property was reported, an official in the district administration said. People rushed out of their houses in some areas after experiencing the tremors, he said.  

The quake hit the region around 3.30 pm, an official of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) here said.  The epicentre of the earthquake was recorded at depth of 16 km, he said.

Two earthquakes have rattled the Central North Island on Wednesday, shaking houses, smashing crockery and knocking pictures from walls. A magnitude 5.2 earthquake has been reported near Turangi in the Central North Island.

GeoNet recorded the moderate earthquake just after 7pm this evening at a depth of 5km, and positioned 15km northeast of Turangi.

And over the last 365 days, according to Earthquake Track, more than 17,700 earthquakes were felt throughout California. California sits right on the boundary of the North American tectonic plate and the Pacific Plate.

The point where the two plates meet and grind up against one another is known as the San Andreas fault line.

Earlier, he had predicted a massive earthquake measuring more than 7.0 on Richter scale could hit some parts of the world between August 17 and 18.

Interestingly, many of the predictions made by Hoogerbeets have turned true in the recent past, and it includes the California quakes that happened on July 5. However, many experts have already rubbished his claims earlier, saying that earthquake are not possible to predict.

Hoogerbeets, on his website, claims that he was using an advanced system named Solar System Geometry Index (SSGI) to predict potential earthquakes that will happen in the future.

"Also, contrary to what is falsely being claimed, we are not part of any conspiracy theory group. We are not against anyone or anything. We provide information in an impartial manner about the seismic effects from specific planetary and lunar geometry," Hoogerbeets says.
