THE best way to survive if a mythical giant planet arrives today has been revealed.Conspiracy theorists are convinced a long-fabled alien world known as Nibiru or Planet X is hurtling across space towards Earth.
Many believe it will become visible for the first time on November 20 before devastating the Earth with a direct hit or catastrophic near miss.
Even if it misses us, doomsayers fear its massive gravitational pull could cause Earth’s poles to shift and trigger earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis.
NASA has denied Nibiru’s existence – although astronomers have found evidence of a planet four times the size of Earth at the outer reaches of our solar system.
Now one of the leading voices in the “Nibiru Cataclysm” movement has told Daily Star Online where to take refuge if the prophecy comes true.
David Meade, who has predicted its arrival in his book Planet X – The 2017 Arrival, said: “When Planet X arrives, you do not want to be located anywhere near a large city.
“These are hotbeds for crime, rioting and looting.
“You need a plan in place to be quickly relocated from any large metropolitan area, such as Los Angeles, New York City or Chicago.
“The most dangerous metropolitan areas for earthquakes include San Francisco and Oakland, the entire Los Angeles basin, Anchorage, Alaska and, of course Seattle, Washington.”
As well as looting, rioting, earthquakes and volcanoes, Nibiru could spark radiation leaks from nuclear power plants, Mr Meade claims.
The Christian numerologist and amateur stargazer – who has matched Bible verses with the movement of the stars and planets to predict Nibiru’s arrival – told Daily Star Online: “Next, you want to Google search ‘map, nuclear power plants, US’ and you’ll come up with some good results.
“Most of the nuclear power plants are on the East Coast and in the Northeast Corridor.
“There are very few out West. Stay at least 100 miles away from these facilities.”
Another danger to be aware of is tidal waves.
Planet X is forecast to pummel the Earth with asteroids as it approaches.
If they land in the oceans, these meteors – as well as the earthquakes – could cause tsunamis.
Some doomsayers say the apparent increase in asteroid near misses reported in the media is down to Nibiru.
Mr Meade told Daily Star Online: “In terms of coast preparation, I’d recommend 150 miles from the southern, eastern and west coasts – and an altitude of at least 600 to 750 feet above sea level.”
The Nibiru Cataclysm myth dates back to 1976, when writer Zecharia Sitchin claimed that two ancient Middle Eastern cultures – the Babylonians and Sumerians – told of a giant planet – Nibiru – that orbited the Sun every 3,600 years.
Self-proclaimed extraterrestrial psychic Nancy Lieder then warned Nibiru would crash into Earth.
Several dates have been mooted for its arrival – most notably 2012 – but it has so far failed to turn up.
