This Man Predicted The Syria-Turkey Earthquake


A recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Turkey and Syria early Monday and has left over 2,700 people dead with thousands of more people still unaccounted for.

One man however predicted the major earthquake would hit Turkey and Syria and even tweeted about it days before it occurred.

Here’s his tweet:

The man who predicted the earth quake was Dutch researcher Frank Hoogerbeets

Even after he was right, he would be fact checked for it

Newsweek had more details to add:

A self-described researcher’s prediction has gone viral after a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit southern Turkey and northern Syria early on Monday.

“Sooner or later there will be a ~M 7.5 #earthquake in this region (South-Central Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon),” Frank Hoogerbeets wrote on Twitter on Friday.

In the aftermath of the quake, his tweet has gone viral, amassing more than 23 million views and 25,000 retweets. One user noted that Hoogerbeets had “accurately predicted the exact area and almost the exact magnitude” of the temblor.

Hoogerbeets’ Twitter bio says he is a researcher with the Solar System Geometry Survey, which on its website describes itself as a research institute “for monitoring geometry between celestial bodies related to seismic activity.”

He even made a video about it on February 2nd:
