North and South America will “split” and mega tsunamis could “strike America and Asia killing 40 million people” in an earthquake described as “imminent”, by a London-educated nuclear engineer. It comes as millions of people across America and Canada will take part tomorrow in “the Great Shake Out” when authorities of major cities simultaneously carry out a dry-run of their emergency response to a major quake. Ahead of the drills, Dr Mehran Keshe, who studied nuclear engineering at the University of London, released videos claiming a mega quake with the power to kill up to 20 million people on the west coast of the USA alone is on the cards.

The events are unconnected, and while there is no scientific or official support for Dr Keshe’s claims some subscribers to his theories suggest his “mega quake” could happen as soon as Saturday, October 17. Emergency drills which begin tomorrow across North America are taking place as part of the country’s long-standing earthquake preparations. In California, officials believe there is a 99% chance there will be a 6.5magnitude or higher quake in the next 30 years – the so called Big One. Iranian-born Dr Keshe, who runs the Keshe Foundation, claims a series of quakes between 6 and 8.3 magnitude in the last month were the beginning of the mega quake, which he claims could come any time between now and next autumn.
