PMD rubbishes rumours predicting disastrous earthquake in Pakistan

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has said that it is impossible to accurately predict any seismic activity as it rebuked rumours circulating on social media that warned of a catastrophic earthquake in Pakistan.

The PMD’s denial comes on Monday after netizens on social media quoted the Solar System Geometry Survey (SSGEOS) and a Dutch scientist Frank Hoogerbeets’ warning that a potential catastrophic seismic event could occur in Pakistan after they “recorded” a significant surge in electric activity along the fault lines in Balochistan’s Chaman.

Commenting on the rumours, the Met Office said that the boundaries of two major tectonic plates inside the Earth pass through Pakistan which is extended from Sonmiani to the northern region of the country Pakistan.

The development comes as the SSGEOS on its official X — formerly known as Twitter — shared an image of Pakistan’s Western border with the remarks “potential for major seismic event”.
