Renowned seismologist, Dr. Lucy Jones, has strongly refuted recent earthquake predictions circulating on a Twitter account, stressing the inherent limitations of current scientific knowledge and technology in foreseeing seismic events accurately.
Disputing claims of an impending major San Diego earthquake, Dr. Jones highlighted the Twitter account’s track record of erroneous forecasts, emphasizing that earthquakes remain inherently unpredictable.
Dr. Jones cautioned against the prevailing misconception that earthquakes can be reliably foretold and pinpointed a critical issue: the lack of transparency regarding prediction methods. She cautioned against succumbing to unwarranted panic and anxiety, urging Californians to critically evaluate sources and exercise vigilance against fear-mongering.
Here is the official interview with Dr. Lucy Jones uploaded on FOX 11 Los Angeles youtube channel:
Rather than stockpiling supplies fueled by fear, she advocated for community engagement, open communication, and shared support networks to better prepare for potential earthquakes.
The seismologist’s advice centered on maintaining composure and turning to reputable scientific information. Dr. Jones implored citizens to resist the allure of sensationalist predictions and instead rely on credible sources to foster a sense of preparedness based on knowledge, mutual assistance, and collective resilience in the face of the unpredictable forces of nature.
