Dutch scientist from the Netherlands-based organization, Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS), has predicted a major earthquake in Pakistan within the next 48 hours.
The Dutch scientist associated with SSGEOS has a track record of predicting earthquakes, notably foreseeing a massive quake in Turkey earlier this year, which tragically claimed the lives of over 47,000 people.
In this recent prediction, the scientist has reported a significant surge in electric activity along the Chaman fault lines, raising concerns about a powerful earthquake in the coming 48 hours.
According to the report, fluctuations in electric charge in the atmosphere near sea level have been detected, particularly in the regions bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan. There is a growing anticipation of strong tremors in these areas in the next few days.
However, it’s important to note that these predictions provide only approximate locations, and there is currently no reliable method to pinpoint the exact epicenter.
For our readers’ information, Pakistan is situated in a region with the largest fault line known as the Chaman fault system. This belt has witnessed significant earthquakes in the past, with a devastating earthquake in May 1935 that claimed the lives of thousands.
Despite the frenzy among the public, the Pakistan Meteorological (Met) Department has not yet responded to these earthquake predictions and speculations.
In previous instances, the PMD has dismissed such claims, stating that there is no scientific basis for predicting earthquakes.
Pakistan remains vulnerable to earthquakes due to its location in a seismically active region, where the Indian Plate converges with the Eurasian Plate, leading to significant seismic activity.

The prediction is making waves on social media with netizens expressing concern and worry. They have urged authorities to take prior actions to deal with possible devastation. People are unwilling to ignore the predictions made by the organization.
Last month, the Middle-Eastern country of Morocco jolted with a powerful earthquake, killing thousands.
