The man who predicted that a powerful earthquake and aftershocks would be imminent in Turkey and Syria has continued to make similar predictions for India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
New Delhi, February 13:
A Dutch researcher from the Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS), Netherlands named Frank Hoogerbeets, who apparently made a dire ‘prediction’ about a powerful earthquake of magnitude greater than 7.5 that would strike Turkey and Syria on February 03. Will do, in which about 33,000 people were killed. Gave a similar warning for India.
In his latest forecast for January 29, which went viral, Frank Hoogerbeats predicted a major earthquake in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, with its effects felt across the Indian Ocean region.
In the viral clip, Huggerbeats can be heard saying, “If we look at atmospheric fluctuations, these regions could be the next candidates for increased seismic activity, but again keep in mind these are rough estimates and Not all major earthquakes leave a footprint. Environment They are not always declared.
Let me be clear: The purple bands do not indicate a potential rupture zone (sic). They mark time zones of atmospheric fluctuations relative to the Sun and a large oscillation may occur in or near that band. I have explained this many times in the video. No room for wild ideas.

Huggerbeats also mentions that these are rough estimates and therefore incomplete.
It is noteworthy to mention that Frank Huggerbeats made this tweet viral where he wrote, “Sooner or later an earthquake of ~M 7.5 will hit this region (south-central Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon).” ‘
Man who ‘predicted’ second earthquake in Turkey, Syria goes viral; netizens call it pseudoscience
SSGS describes itself on Twitter as a research institute for monitoring the geometry between celestial bodies related to seismic activity.
However, some users have questioned the Dutch expert’s prediction, calling it pseudoscience.
So now the question is can you predict earthquakes?
The answer is no. According to the US Geological Survey website, neither the USGS nor any other scientist has ever predicted a major earthquake. We don’t know how, and we don’t expect to know any time in the near future. USGS scientists can only calculate the probability that a significant earthquake will occur in a specific area (shown on our hazard mapping) within a certain number of years.
