Earhquake prediction: A massive earthquake measuring up to 8.0 on Richter scale may hit some parts of the world between September 14 and 17. A self-proclaimed seismic researcher named Frank Hoogerbeets said: “The next critical days will be from 14 to 17 September after Earth lines up with Mercury and Venus on the 13th and with Mars and Neptune on the 14th. In the extreme case, seismic activity could go up to magnitude 8 in that time-frame.”
On his website, Ditrianum, Frank Hoogerbeets said: “Since August Hawaii has become more active again with over 200 M2+ seismic events, an obvious increase compared to the previous months. Just like in 2018, when Hawaii was very active, there is an obvious absence of larger earthquakes. At the same time there are smaller seismic events (M4+) in places where we do not see them so often, like in Africa (opposite Hawaii) and towards the North pole.
Earlier, Hoogerbeets had predicted that a massive earthquake measuring more than 8.0 on Richter scale may hit some parts of the world between September 5 and 7.
Hoogerbeets wrote: “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.”
Interestingly, four tremors were felt in 10 hours in Himachal Pradesh's Chamba district on Monday. No immediate loss of life or property was reported, Chamba Superintendent of Police Monica Bhutunguru said.
The tremors, which occurred between 12.10 pm and 9.27 pm, were of a magnitude between 2.7 and 5, Shimla Meteorological Centre Director Manmohan Singh said. The first tremor with a magnitude of 5 hit at 12.10 pm, he added. The second tremor with a magnitude of 3.2 was recorded at 12.40 pm, followed by the third at 12.50 pm, which had a magnitude of 2.7.
The fourth tremor with a magnitude of 3.2 was recorded at 9.27 pm.
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.
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.
