- Ominous Forecast: ‘Mega-Thrust’ Earthquake May Hit US West Coast This Week
In a February 3 tweet, Dutch seismologist Frank Hoogerbeets warned of a possible magnitude 7.5 or greater earthquake in Turkiye and Syria. Three days later, a devastating earthquake struck precisely on the Turkiye-Syria border, causing massive damage and tens of thousands of deaths.
Seismologist Frank Hoogerbeets at the Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS) has issued a prediction of a major earthquake in the upcoming week.
“We cannot know for sure, but the first week of March will be extremely critical. We could see earthquakes of magnitude more than seven or eight,” the researcher said in a new video breakdown.
The Dutch seismologist explains that “a convergence of critical planetary geometry” may lead to a very large seismic activity around March 3-4. According to the researcher, it could also result in a “mega-thrust earthquake” this weekend, with the power of the potential quake possibly reaching 8 magnitude on the Richter scale.
