Due to slowing rotational speed of planet Earth, year 2018 could witness devastating and massive earthquakes which could lead to huge destruction.

If reports are to be believed, scientists have warned that year 2018 would face more powerful earthquakes where the magnitude level will be 7.0 or more. A report published in the journal Bendick and colleague Roger Bilham, a geophysicist at the University of Colorado, Boulder, says that it can even reach 9.0. However, some researchers are not satisfied with the research and are of the view that there is nothing to panic about.

The study published this October creates 50 possible simulations for how the natural disaster may unfold. 

Countries like Western USA, southern Europe, the Middle East, South America will be affected more by this, reports added.
