You may have heard a lot of organic disasters like - hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and many more occurring in past years. Few areas are affected more by these disasters. According to recent studies, a prophecy is made that many such failures tend to occur in near and distant future.
Here are the ten catastrophic disasters that are predicted to occur at any point of time.
According to SEAS University, by 2050 wildfire seasons will be smokier and will scorch the greater part of US. The changing climate and the raised temperature of the earth will create such conditions that will spawn 30,000-50,000 wildfires in the US.
There was a prediction about volcanic eruption of Baroarbunga, in Iceland and within few weeks the prediction came true. On August 23, 2014, the volcano started exploding beneath Dyngjujokull glacier. Later earthquakes and Holuhraun fissure erupted, which lasted for about six month.
The earlier earthquake opened so big crevices that it could create a possibility of a larger earthquake in nearby places. The tension between faults causes earthquakes to take place and it is believed that till now only 33 percent of it is relieved and rest is to be predicted in future.
Dr. Masaaki Kimura, a seismologist is forecasting that another 9.0 magnitude earthquake complementary to 2011 Tohoku earthquake will take place in 2017. This predicted an earthquake will occur in Izu Islands further followed by a tsunami in Japan.
Japan is the place where 110 volcanic eruptions have taken place. Out of which 47 are active, Mt. Fuji is the tallest of all volcanoes that is most likely to erupt causing a matter of concern for all Japanese citizens.
The disastrous earthquake-tsunami split is predicted 97 km offshore from Oregon. It is been predicted that this split will occur inevitably killing 10,000 people and will cost US $32 billion of damage.
Coastal areas of north-eastern US are found to be more risky as a result of built coastlines in New York. They are prone to get flooded by 2050. Around 800,000 lives of people is in target of high floodplain.
Dr. Simon and Dr. Steward envision that Cumbre Vieja volcano situated on the Canary Islands is bound to erupt, leaving behind the largest tsunami in the known history. They have foreseen that landslide that will erupt will travel to Florida with the speed of 800 kilometers per hour.
According to a recent survey the probability of larger earthquake occurring and hitting California within few decades is been increased. It is been forecast that in coming 30 years the earthquake will demolish many parts of California including West Coast.
A catastrophic solar storm that occurred in July 2012 did not hit the Earth. But there is a 12 percent chance of major solar storm beating the Earth in next 10 years. If it happened then it would cost $1-2 trillion in the first year of its attack which will take almost 8-10 years of the recovery period.
