The Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS) has predicted an earthquake in the Chaman fault line. According to the prediction, the earthquake will occur in the next two days. SSGEOS monitors movements of celestial bodies related to seismic activity and had earlier forecasted the Turkey earthquake.
The Chaman fault line is the largest fault line in South Asia, which is 900 km long and encapsulates multiple areas of Afghanistan & Pakistan. According to the research survey, strong tremors have been recorded in the underground Chaman fault line. In the next 48 hours, a powerful earthquake may occur in the area of intensity near 6 magnitude.
SSGEOS added that electric charge fluctuations occurred in the atmosphere near the sea level that could cause powerful earthquakes in the purple areas on the map, including Balochistan. Note that their website stated that the defined areas are only approximations as there is no reliable method to determine the exact locations.
Safety measures in case of an earthquake
Precautions for Indoors
If anyone is located in an indoor territory during an earthquake, they should not run outside to avoid injuries from falling debris. The US Geological Survey, advises to hold on, duck and cover.
Similarly, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) advises:
- If anyone is inside a building, they should get under a table or desk and cover the head and chest.
- Grab the object that a person is under until the shaking has finished.
- In case a person is in a hallway, then bend against an interior wall and protect the head & neck with arms.
- Stay away from windows and shelves with heavy objects.
Precautions for Outdoors
For those who could be outdoors:
- Stay away from overhead wires,
- Avoid steep slopes that may collapse or generate falling debris
- If anyone is driving then stop the car in an open area. Make sure the care is not stopped at a road cut, where debris may fall.
List of don’ts during an earthquake
- Don’t turn on the gas again if turned it off
- Never use matches, lighters, camp stoves, or electrical equipment, as any gas leak may cause a spark that could ignite an explosion.
- Until there’s not a medical or fire emergency, don’t use the telephone as the lines can tie up for necessary emergency response.
