‘Quake mystic’ Frank Hoogerbeets has issued an online “Major Earthquake Warning.” He wrote on his website ditrianum.org: “In the last week of February and the first week of March there will likely be a significant increase in seismic activity with the highest probability of an eight plus magnitude earthquake around March 4.”
Frank’s prediction is usually based on planetary alignments with Earth which is obviously a non-scientifically recognized way.
He added: “The anticipated seismic increase starting around February 24 will contrast sharply with only a few planetary alignments from the last week of January to the third week of February.” According to him, on February 24 (today) two planetary alignments will occur both involving Mars and Venus.”
He said: “Earth will be very close to these alignments as it will be within 0°38′ of the Jupiter-Uranus resonance vector. This will become apparent in the following days when Earth lines up with the aforementioned planets except for Venus.”
“Then, on February 27, Earth itself will be involved in two alignments, first with Mars and Uranus at 0:12 UTC and then with Mars and Jupiter at 14:05 UTC. As a result, increased seismic activity over six magnitudes is likely to continue on the 28th and into March.”
Overall, there will be twelve planetary alignments in two weeks (from February 24 to March 8).
Astronomer Phil Plait, who writes for New Scientist said:
“There is simply no way an alignment of planets can cause an earthquake on Earth. It’s literally impossible.”
But Frank reportedly predicted the December 25, 2016, magnitude-7.6 Chile earthquake, the earthquake that hit Surigao City last February 10, and the 6.3 magnitude earthquake that struck northern Argentina last February 17.
So should we fear from his latest warning?
