Huge spike in devastating earthquakes forecast THIS YEAR as Earth’s spin SLOWING DOWN

THE number of devastating earthquakes this year could increase dramatically because of changes in the Earth’s rotation, experts fear.

Boffins have discovered a link between massive Magnitude 7 or greater quakes and the Earth’s rotation since 1900.

They found periods where the number of large earthquakes rocketed from 15 to as many as 30 a year.

And these periods had all followed a slowing down of the Earth’s rotation which could be as little as a millisecond a day.

The Earth began rotating slower four years ago so the spike in mega earthquakes could happen in 2018, based on this theory.

he link was uncovered by Roger Bilham and Rebecca Bendick from the universities of Colorado and Montana in America.

“The Earth is offering us a five-year heads-up on future earthquakes, which is remarkable,” said Mr Bilham.

“Next year we should see a significant increase in numbers of severe earthquakes.

“We could easily have 20 a year starting in 2018.”

Although it is nearly impossible to predict where such an earthquake will happen, Balham said areas near the equator could be most at risk from the effect in changing day length.

About one billion people live in the Earth’s tropical regions.

Earthquakes are usually caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault.

This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake.

The biggest earthquake of all time, which registered a Magnitude of 9.4-9.6, struck the area of Valdivia in Chile in 1960.
