A huge earthquake in Pakistan is expected to strike within the next 48 hours, according to the Netherlands-based Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS), which recently made news for its prediction.
The Dutch scientist who works for SSGEOS has a record of predicting earthquakes, notably foretelling a massive quake in Turkey earlier this year in which over 47,000 people lost their lives
In its recent prediction, the scientist reports a massive surge of electric activity along Chaman fault lines, sparking anticipation of a powerful earthquake in the next 48 hours.
The report claimed fluctuations of electric charge in the atmosphere near the sea level have been recorded, and region neighboring Pakistan, and Afghanistan could experience strong tremors in the next few days.
It further said that these areas defined are only approximations and there is currently no reliable way to determine the exact locations.
Amid frenzy among people, Pakistan Metrological (Met) Department has not responded to the predictions and speculations about the earthquake.
In previous events, PMD dismissed such claims, saying there is no scientific basis for earthquake predictions.
