The Turkish Emergency and Disaster Management Department monitored the earthquake in northern Iraq with a magnitude of 4.3.

While the predictions of the Dutch seismologist Frank Hogrebits are still causing controversy around the world, an earthquake measuring 4.3 on the Richter scale struck the city of Mosul, in northern Iraq, at dawn today, Saturday.

A statement by the Turkish Emergency and Disaster Management Presidency, AFAD, said on Twitter, on Saturday, that an earthquake measuring 4.3 degrees on the Richter scale occurred at 02:25 Turkish time (GMT +3) in the city of Mosul, according to the Anadolu News Agency.

41,000 residential buildings collapsed due to the earthquake in Turkey

The statement indicated that the epicenter of the earthquake was in the Al-Hamdaniya district, at a depth of 15.27 km below the surface of the earth.

Local media reports stated that some citizens’ homes were damaged as a result of the tremor, and that residents of neighboring cities felt the quake.

The earthquake in Iraq comes amid great seismic activity hitting the region in the aftermath of the deadly earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria on February 6.

The death toll in Turkey and Syria as a result of the horrific earthquake exceeded 50,000.

The Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Authority said the death toll from the earthquake in Turkey rose to 44,218 on Friday evening. Adding the latest announced death toll in Syria, which is 5,914 dead, brings the total death toll in the two countries to more than 50,000.

In Egypt, Cairo and a number of Egyptian governorates were subjected to a severe earthquake on Friday evening, a few hours after 3 tremors occurred in the morning, and its epicenter was the Suez region, east of the country.

Eyewitnesses told that the tremor was strong and shook buildings and facilities with great force, while there were no reports of losses or casualties.

For his part, Dr. Jad Al-Qadi, Director of the Institute of Astronomy, said that although there were some communications that an earthquake was felt in the vicinity of Cairo, the stations of the national seismological network did not record any earthquakes.

Look out for the beginning of March

And the expectations of the Dutch seismologist Frank Hogrebits still raise controversy and even terror with his predictions about earthquakes that occur in the countries of the world, as he returned again to warn of an earthquake between 25 and 26 February, claiming that it would not be catastrophic, but it might become so in beginning of March, he said.

And I came across the predictions of the Dutch scientist, who, after an earthquake occurred in Tajikistan at a depth of 10 km, the strongest in the last three days, published the prediction of the body he follows, which stated that stronger seismic activity may occur in the period from approximately February 20 to 22, and it is likely that it will reach peaks on the 22nd.

And the validity of the Dutch scientist’s expectations was also increased by what was recorded by the networks of the National Seismological Station in Egypt, as it recorded 3 consecutive earthquakes near Suez, on Friday, felt by the residents of Cairo, Qalyubia, Suez, Port Said and Ismailia.
