The great prophet Nostradamus called 2018 the most terrible for mankind. Five centuries later, scientists are forced to admit: in many ways the prophet was right ...

More than 25 powerful earthquakes
At the end of last year, seismologists from the University of Colorado at Boulder and from the University of Montana, the US warned: 2018 should be a record year in the number of earthquakes. After tracing the history of oscillations of the Earth's crust throughout the 20th century, scientists determined that peaks of seismic activity coincide with periods of slowing the rate of rotation of the Earth around its axis.

How these phenomena are related is unclear, but the fact remains: in these years, the number of powerful jolts with a magnitude of more than 7 points doubled compared to the usual figures. In the twentieth century there were five such periods - during each of them the Earth experienced 25-30 tremors, while in ordinary years the number of strong earthquakes does not exceed 15.

2017 passed as calmly as possible in terms of seismic activity: only seven large earthquakes were recorded. But the author of the study, Roger Bilham, is sure that this is only a calm before the storm, and in 2018 there will be more than 25 of them.

Eruption of the supervolcano


The most deafening and terrifying cataclysm of 2018 is the eruption of the Yellowstone super-volcano, located in the west of the United States. In 2017, he demonstrated anomalous seismic activity. According to scientists, the timing of its next eruption just approached, but when exactly it happens, it is impossible to predict exactly - this is a lottery.

The volcano in Yellowstone is considered at the moment the most dangerous place on Earth. It's good, if the matter is confined to the usual eruption, but things can get worse if the eruption is huge - this happened three times in the history of the volcano. During the giant eruptions, the emissions rose to a height of 50 km and spread over an area of ​​thousands of square kilometers.

The fall of the asteroid
Brazil has its own Nostradamus, and its name is Juscelino Nobrega de Luza. He is a modest schoolteacher who became famous all over the world after accurately predicting the tragedy with twin towers in the USA on September 11, 2001. On his account and many other accurate predictions - the Brazilian foresaw the death of Formula 1 racing driver Ayrton Senna, the death of presidential candidate Eduardo Campos and other tragedies.

The prophet's forecast for 2018 is as follows: our planet will face a large asteroid. At the same time the Brazilian reassured the earthlings that there will be no end of the world - the catastrophe will have a local character.


Astronomers do not confirm the prophecy, but they also can not deny the probability of a catastrophe: according to estimates of American specialists, about 90 celestial bodies will pass in relative proximity from the Earth in 2018, of which 13 really threaten the planet.

The first potentially dangerous asteroids will fly by the Earth already in the end of January, but the probability of their falling to the Earth is extremely small. The closest and most dangerous asteroid is called "2015 DP155" and will approach the critical distance to the Earth on June 11. Its size is about 280 meters, so in case of a fall the consequences can be quite serious.

By the way, the fall of the celestial body in 2018 to one of the European countries was predicted by Wang. According to her prophecy, an asteroid must fall on the territory of a large pond, which will provoke a terrible flood that will take many lives.

Worldwide floods


Vanga's explanation of the terrible flood is also confirmed by scientists, and their forecasts are even less optimistic: the floods will affect not just one European country, but will pass almost all over the world. According to a study published in the journal Science Advances, the cause of cataclysms will be global warming.

The rise in temperatures will cause numerous storms and heavy rains, the number of which will increase from year to year, starting in 2018. Under the greatest impact will be such regions as Central Europe, Africa, Central and North America, India. Russia is less affected by the threat of floods.
