He warned that around next week’s Supermoon event, from January 30 to February 2, there will be planetary “amplifications” which he described as critical.
He said: “From January 30 to February 2 will be more critical with the possibility of a seven pointer because of an amplification here on the 30th.
“But a Blue Moon or a lunar eclipse or a full Moon does not necessarily cause a seismic increase, it requires obvious amplifications like we see here to cause a seismic increase on our planet and this is a significant amplification and as you can read on the website a high six to seven magnitude earthquake may occur between the 30th and February 2.”
Mr Hoogerbeets uses a non-scientifically recognised way of predicting earthquakes based on planetary alignments with Earth, amid claims the “increased electromagnetic force causes stress on fault lines on Earth”.
He said: “Contrary to what many people assume, we do not believe that gravity is responsible for larger earthquakes at the time of planetary alignments.
“Rather, we believe that electromagnetic waves affect Earth’s crust on an atomic level causing specific frequencies to be amplified.
“Not every alignment causes a seismic increase, but almost every seismic increase (magnitude six plus+) is caused by one or more planetary alignments.”
The supermoon was 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual making it appear closer to Earth.
His system has been ridiculed by mainstream scientists, but he continues to gain followers on his YouTube channel and website.
He told Express.co.uk: “Full Moons and thus Supermoons can greatly affect seismic activity.
“In fact, some of the largest quakes occurred around the Full Moon, like the magnitude 9.3 on December 26, 2004 and the magnitude 9.2 on March 28, 1964 in Alaska.
“But it also greatly depends on the planetary positions that coincide with the Full Moon.”
He claims to have previously predicted a string of major earthquakes across the globe, but is ridiculed by mainstream scientists who say the position of the planets has no impact on seismic activity.
But, Mr Hoogerbeets has made several predictions with distinctly mixed results.
There have been significant quakes after some of his warnings, but he is no longer specific about where they will strike or the exact day.
In December 2015 he was mocked after predicting a powerful magnitude eight earthquake that could “change the world forever” would strike on the 11 or 12 of the month, only for it to fail to materialise.
So should we fear his latest warning?
Mr Hoogerbeets admits he also relies on messages from spirits, crop circle formations, and so-called “key Earth dates” in order to predict when earthquakes will strike.
Astronomer Phil Plait, who writes for New Scientist, previously said of his predictions: “Let me be clear: No, it won’t. It can’t.
“There is simply no way an alignment of planets can cause an earthquake on Earth. It’s literally impossible.”
Mr Hoogerbeets said seismologists needed to take note because “whenever the three objects in our solar system lined up there was a significant earthquake anytime from the day before to one or two days afterwards”.
