How a researcher named Frank Hoogerbeets (@hogrbe) working with Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS) forecasted and predicted the earthquakes that happened in Turkey & Syria three days before they happened. Warns more quakes and tremors might come in the coming days and weeks.
A researcher by the name of Frank Hoogerbeets (@hogrbe) predicted and warned on Twitter about the impending earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on Monday morning.
In his tweet, Frank Hoogerbeets forecasted the then incoming quake; “Sooner or later there will be a ~M 7.5 #earthquake in this region (South-Central Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon). #deprem”
According to his profile, Frank Hoogerbeets is a researcher working with Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS); an institute for monitoring geometry between celestial bodies related to seismic activity.
He accurately predicted that an earthquake will happen in Turkey and Syria on Frida, 3 days before the massive quakes happened.
The Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS) on Tuesday, also warned of possible quakes/tremors on Wednesday, February 8.
“FORECAST: Lunar geometry may cause some strong seismic activity in the coming days, especially around 8 February, most likely in the M6 range. There is a slight possibility of a larger seismic event. Aftershocks will continue in Central Turkey and it could reach higher M 5 to 6.”
It further warned that aftershocks will continue in the following days and weeks and a strong quake is possible.
“So far, 10 aftershocks of M 5.5 and larger have occurred in #Turkey (following the initial Mw 7.8). Aftershocks will continue in the coming days and possibly weeks. A stronger aftershock approaching/exceeding M 6 is possible. #earthquake #deprem.”
Videos of tall multistory buildings as well as other highrise complexes falling and collapsing into crumbles after the earthquakes have made waves on social media, with the tagline; #prayforturkey and #prayforsyria trending in some spaces.
According to the Geological Survey, the first earthquake struck at 4:17 am (0117 GMT) at a depth of about 18 kilometers (11 miles) near the Turkish city of Gaziantep. About 2 million people live in that location.
According to authorities, at least 1,293 people died Syria in Syria as a result of the earthquakes while the Turkish government officials reported another 1,762 fatalities, putting the total death toll at 3,055.
