Scientists warn that FOUR mega-earthquakes could be on the way.
In the past forty-eight hours, there have been five major earthquakes in various parts of the world. Now seismologists are warning the general public that this level of seismic activity could lead to a wave of imminent ‘catastrophic mega earthquakes.’
Since 2016, South Asia and areas scattered across the Pacific have experienced a significantly elevated rate of earthquakes. These have included a magnitude 6.5 which hit the island nation of Vanuatu, a 5.9 magnitude earthquake in the Southern Philippines, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake in Myanmar and a devastating 6.6 magnitude in the Pakistani city of Kabul which caused the deaths of six people. Nepal, China, and India have all experienced significant quakes over the past year.
According to the experts, this wave of unusual seismic disruption is very probably going to spell serious trouble down the line. According to Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado, the current conditions place the world in an incredibly precarious and dangerous situation. He claims that the positioning of the plates at this current time could mean that the world could be stricken with as many as four mega earthquakes in the coming months. Bilham explains that a ‘mega earthquake’ refers to a quake that measures more than 8.0 on the Richter scale.
An earthquake measuring 8.0 on the Richter scale could be extraordinary devastating. In Japan, the south western island of Kyushu was recently brought to a halt after an earthquake of magnitude 6.4. This earthquake was responsible for the deaths of three individuals and the serious injuries of a further nineteen. The earthquake also destroyed more than a dozen houses and caused widespread fires in the region. Given that most buildings in earthquake zones are built only to sustain an earthquake of around 7.4 on the Richter scale, the potential fallout from an earthquake of greater magnitude could be significantly more damaging than the Kyushu earthquake. It is estimated that an earthquake of this scale in a developed country such as Japan, China or the United States could cause a freeze in the global markets.
