A chain email has been doing its round the Internet claiming another Tsunami will strike on July 22nd this year.
An email has been raising alarm of a pending major earthquake in Pacific ocean offf Japan and Taiwan. The email was forwarded to Nanyang100 with the message of:
“Hello there. I just wanted 2 let you know that please stay away from the beaches all around in the month of July. There is a prediction that there will be another tsunami hitting on July 22nd. It is also when there will be sun eclipse. Predicted that it is going 2 be really bad and countries like Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak), Singapore, Maldives, Australia, Mauritius, Si Lanka, India, Indonesia, Philippines are going 2 be badly hit. Please try and stay away from the beaches in July. Better 2 be safe than sorry. Please pass the word around. Please also pray for all beings.”
Experts which Nanyang100 spoke to said that it is impossible to predict when an earthquake will occur and whether it will result in a Tsunami.
“This is most likely to be an April Folk Day joke!”, said one of the engineer Nanyang100 spoke to. “This is unlikely to be real because our current technology and knowledge is not sophisticated enough to predict the occurance. We can only speculate that it will happen based on computer modelling but to be extend of when and where it will happen, it is still pretty much a guess work.”
