A Dutch man is telling Californians to be prepared for an impending magnitude 8.8 earthquake he says will strike today at 3 p.m.
In a video posted to YouTube, Frank Hoogerbeets warns that the effect of planets aligning Thursday will trigger the massive quake.
“I believe I know when exactly it is going to be. I hope I am wrong,” Hoogerbeets told KTXL Wednesday, adding that he has no science degree but is an enthusiast. “It really comes together May 28, 2015,” he said in the video. h/t fox13now
Seismologists insist that there is no way to accurately predict the time, date and place of an earthquake.
Hoogerbeets says came within two days of predicting the Nepal earthquake, which killed nearly 8,800 people last month.
