Earthquake prediction by city academicians comes true
Mangalore | Monday, Sep 6 2010 IST
Believe it or not! two predictions on a volcanic eruption and earthquake made by a well-known academician from Mangalore and Dean of K S Hegde Medical Academy Dr Arunachalam Kumar, Deralakatte here have come true.
On August 20, 2010, Dr Arunachalam Kumar had received an e-mail about whales stranded enmasse off the coast. The mailer had queried the professor on the possible outcome of this event. Dr Kumar, who has espoused the theory that unexplained whale deaths were linked to natural disasters over the years. He was proved to be spot-on in the accuracy of his forecasts. In his reply, Dr Arunachalam said the incident was a prelude to eruption of a volcano in Indonesia within seven days and that an earthquake would follow within two weeks.
Both his predictions, based on the observations on changes in whale behavior, turned out absolutely right. On August 29, Mt Sinabung, a long dormant volcano in Sumatra erupted suddenly forcing the flight of thousands of people in the vicinity. On September 4, Christchurch, New Zealand was rocked by one of the most powerful earthquakes in its history.
