No sign of huge earthquake today, says Phivolcs chief

Philippine Star - Friday, July 18

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said that they have not recorded any major quake in the past few hours, contrary to reports of a prediction made by a Brazilian clairvoyant that the country would be struck by a magnitude 8.1 quake today.Phivolcs director Renato Solidum, in an interview over dzBB, also hit Juseleeno DaRoose, for making the prediction.

"The claim of a magnitude-8.1 quake is baseless scientifically because no one can accurately predict the exact date of a quake," Solidum said in Filipino.

The Phivolcs chief also questioned the credibility of DaRoose, saying there were reports that the seer has also denied the claim.
