A devastating earthquake is set to strike the mid-Atlantic in just two days as a result of planetary alignments, according to a tremor forecasting expert. Earthquake researcher Frank Hoogerbeets claims that a major magnitude 7 quake is set to strike in the mid-Atlantic in just two days.
Hoogerbeets’ website, Ditrianum.org, issues earthquake warnings based on the alignments of celestial bodies. Mr. Hoogerbeets, 48, who used non-scientific methods to predict earthquakes by comparing planetary alignments with Earth, now has many followers who believe his predictions are accurate. In his latest video, he claims that the earth has entered a “critical period” which will continue until Friday.
He TOLD Express.co.uk: “From August 28 to September 1 will be critical because of two planetary alignments, one of which is Jupiter-Mercury-Uranus. Mr. Hoogerbeets warned up until September 1 there would be a seismic increase and there was a risk of a magnitude 7 quake – considered a major event. He said the “seismic increase” was “anticipated until September 1, with a strong possibility of a magnitude 7 plus earthquake.”
Mr. Hoogerbeets was not specific about where the quake might strike but warned that activity had increased off the coast of north eastern Canada, which had affected the north mid-Atlantic ridge and, in turn, the Mediterranean. Mr. Hoogerbeets also issued a wider warning saying because there have “only been three magnitude-7 plus earthquakes in 2017,” it meant more were likely towards the end of the year – like in 2004 when the world witnessed the horrific boxing day tsunami that hit south east Asia. He said: “This is way below average. A similar situation existed in 2004 with no magnitude 7 plus earthquakes between February and July. “But no less than 12 magnitude 7 plus earthquakes occurred in the second half of that year, including a magnitude 8.1 and 9.3 earthquakes in December.
“If the same trend is going to happen this year then we are in for quite a seismic ride between September and December, with a strong possibility of a magnitude 8 plus earthquake in these last four months whereby a magnitude 7.8 or 7.9 is more than likely to occur in September, because the situation will be similar to April 2015 at the time of the magnitude 7.8 earthquake in Nepal. “Because of the low average of large earthquakes this year, most earthquake prone countries in the world should be on watch.”
His technique, used on his new age website from his home in the Netherlands, has been ridiculed by mainstream scientists who say the position of the planets has no impact on seismic activity. Mr. Hoogerbeets has made several predictions with distinctly mixed results. There have been significant quakes after some of his warnings, but he is no longer specific about where they will strike or the exact day. In December 2015 he was mocked after predicting a powerful magnitude eight earthquakes that could “change the world forever” would strike on the 11 or 12 of the month, only for it to fail to materialize. There was also the much publicised mega quake he warned was about to hit California in May 2015 – but it too never arrived.
The tenth anniversary of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami that killed almost 250,000 people will be remembered on December 26. So should we fear his latest warning? Mr. Hoogerbeets admits he also relies on messages from spirits, crop circle formations, and so-called “key Earth dates” in order to predict when earthquakes will strike. Astronomer Phil Plait, who writes for New Scientist, previously said of his predictions: “Let me be clear: No, it won’t. It can’t. “There is simply no way an alignment of planets can cause an earthquake on Earth. It’s literally impossible.” Mr. Hoogerbeets said seismologists needed to take note because “whenever the three objects in our solar system lined up there was a significant earthquake anytime from the day before to one or two days afterward”.
