After causing controversy in the scientific community for his earthquake predictions and his reliance on planetary movements, Dutch scientist Frank Hogerbits has warned of a new tremor near the site of a devastating earthquake that hit Turkey last February. warned in a tweet on Twitter, asking everyone to be on the lookout. Get ready in the area over the next few days.
He added that on April 21, the region experienced vibrations to the east of the earthquake zone in a scenario similar to what happened on January 29 before the strong earthquake on February 6.
The reputation of the Dutch scientist for predicting the occurrence of the Turkish catastrophe in great detail before it happened became known, and since then he issued warnings every period in which he expected an earthquake in different regions of the year, as he relied on in his predictions of the motions of the planets.
And his story began when he posted a tweet on February 3 in which he wrote: “Sooner or later there will be a 7.5 magnitude earthquake that will hit south-central Turkey, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.”
Despite being attacked by the scientific community, who disagreed with his opinion, the Dutch researcher tried to explain his method of work, emphasizing that earthquakes tend to occur when planets reach certain places in the solar system, repeatedly noting that earthquakes cannot be predicted.
It is noteworthy that in February last year, parts of Turkey and Syria were hit by a devastating earthquake of magnitude 7.7 on the Richter scale, followed at noon by another earthquake of magnitude 7.6.
