Public warned to be on red alert for 'devastating EARTHQUAKE strike within 48 hours'

A HUGE earthquake could "strike the globe within hours" according to a self-styled Nostradamus who claims to have accurately forecast the three biggest tremors this year...but admits he was way off on another premonition.

Anyone living in a major seismic region is being warned by an online earthquake predictor to be on red alert until at least Wednesday, even though he readily accepts he is not always spot on.

The Ditrianum Media YouTube channel claims that planetary alignments can trigger earthquakes on Earth.

Frank Hoogerbeets, from the Netherlands, who is behind the channel, claims the fact Earth, the Sun and Uranus are in allighment from TODAY "vastly increases the chances of a 8 magnitude quake striking an at risk area of the planet between now and October 14".

After receiving widespread ridicule for wrongly predicting a magnitude 9.8 quake would devastate California in May, Mr Hoogerbeets has given no idea of where it may strike this time.

But despite his infamous blunder this spring, he says that so far this year he has been correct on predicting three significant earthquakes, the latest being an 8.3 magnitude tremor in Chile on September 16.

Mr Hoogerbeets has now posted a video online in which he readily admitted his theory was "not scientific".

That is a fact that the scientific community are in agreement with him over, but it seems to end there.

Astronomer Phil Plait, who writes for New Scientist, said ahead of the May prediction: "Let me be clear: No, it won't. It can't. 

Despite this, Mr Hoogerbeets said seismologists needed to take note because "whenever the three objects in our solar system lined up there was a significant earthquake anytime from the day before to one or two days afterwards."

He takes the viewers through a number of examples when the alignment occurred and coincided within a few days of a magnitude 6-plus earthquake, including a huge Japanese tremor in 1995.

In an email to Express.co.uk, he said one was due because of this alignment which also this time includes the Moon, making it even more likely.

He said: "(An earthquake is due) right now, October 12 to 14 may have a larger earthquake, of magnitude seven or more, due to a Sun-Moon-Earth-Uranus alignment.

"I made a most interesting video about what I have termed the "Uranus factor", which was also responsible for the magnitude 7.2 that devastated Kobe, Japan in 1995.

"My claim is that if seismologists learn about planetary influences they may raise the alarm in time, saving thousands of lives."
