PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – They are pretty rare in our area, but every few years the Pittsburgh area will feel an earthquake that will shake the ground enough to give us a scare. Mainstream science says that earthquakes cannot be predicted, but David Nabhan author of “Earthquake Prediction: Answers in Plain Slight” says otherwise.

Nabhan is a former teacher in California and now lives in Pittsburgh. He became interested in earthquakes while he was the earthquake preparedness coordinator for the school he worked at. He says he noticed every earthquake happened at dusk or dawn.

“I realized this sort of conscience doesn’t happen in science. These dawn and dusk quakes during new and full moons are the paradigm on the west coast,” he said. “All six great quakes that have struck in Los Angeles that have killed people since the 30s, all of them, dawn or dusk [quakes].

How can earthquakes be predicted? Nabhan says that it is the, “conjoined lunar and solar gravitational tides,” are what cause them.

“Just imagine the muscle required to move our oceans around every day. Our fractured fault lines are not immune to this [power],” he said.

Nabhan says that there has never been a new idea in science that wasn’t accepted without a fight.

So, when will the next big earthquakes happen?

Nabhan says July 12 and Sept. 9, between 4:45 to 7:55 a.m. and/or p.m.
