We have witnessed Haiti crumble under a massive Earthquake in 2010, Northern Japan being swept by gigantic Tsunami waves in 2011, and Nepal fall apart, piece by piece due to the recent spate of nasty earthquakes, this year. And there have been many other ‘insignificant’ natural calamities which didn’t even get reported.
So, what if we tell you that the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal was part of a pattern and many seismologists had been expecting this one. What if we tell you that the exact date and location of the earthquake had been predicted by a team of researchers who warned the authorities in Nepal, just weeks ago. What if we tell you that the same team of researchers believe that this earthquake is probably not big enough to rupture all the way to the surface, so:
We should be expecting a bigger earthquake in the coming months.
These natural disasters were just wake up calls.
There are bigger monsters in-store and the clock is ticking.
It would not be an overstatement to say that we should be worried, really worried. Don’t believe us? Let experts put the pieces of the puzzle together for you. Here are 10 predictions which show that the doomsday is near:
1. We are staring at earthquakes 32 times mightier than the Nepal quake.
With 2 massive quakes in a week’s time, the worst has not passed yet. In fact, it’s yet to come. If Harsh K Gupta (former director of the Hyderabad-based National Geophysical Research Institute) is to be believed, the recent earthquakes which rocked Nepal and large parts of India were just trailers as compared to what lies in store. “We know there is a huge amount of accumulated strain in this area. It is due for a major earthquake, perhaps a series of earthquakes, bigger than 8 on the Richter scale.” said Gupta in an interview to Indian Express.
However, the terrifying part is that not all the energy could be released in the recent earthquakes which imply energy worth billions of tons is still trying to find an outlet. This outlet will be provided in the form massive earthquakes which will be 32 times stronger than the recent quakes witnessed in Nepal. Just when you thought, there could be nothing worse than this, scientists also don’t know when these super quakes will happen.
