Scientists Predict Severe Earthquakes Will Hit The World In 2018

Many Scientists from the United States have warned that the world will face a significant increase in the number of major Earthquakes in 2018. The Geological Society of America held its annual meeting in October after that they published their presentation which reads as follows:

“On five occasions in the past century, a 25-30% increase in annual numbers of Mw≥7 earthquakes has coincided with a slowing in the mean rotation velocity of the Earth, with a corresponding decrease at times when the length-of-day (LoD) is short.”

“The correlation between Earth’s angular deceleration (d[LoD]/dt) and global seismic productivity is yet more striking and can be shown to precede seismicity by 5-6 years, permitting societies at risk from earthquakes an unexpected glimpse of future seismic hazard.”

Earthquakes magnitude 7 and over

  • 2011 – 20 (22,000)
  • 2012 – 14 (630)
  • 2013 – 18 (1500)
  • 2014 – 12 (750)
  • 2015 – 19 (10,000)
  • 2016 – 16 (1300)
  • 2017 – 6 (1100)

United States researcher Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado said,

“So far we have only had about six Severe Earthquakes. We could easily have 20 a year starting in 2018.”

“It is straightforward… the Earth is offering us a five-year heads-up on future earthquakes.”
