But if claims about Nostradamus’s writings are true, the mystic may have warned of a powerful solar flare hitting the planet.
Century VIII, Quatrain 2, reads: “Condom and Auch and around Mirande,
“I see fire from the sky which encompasses them.
“Sun and Mars conjoined in Leo, then at Marmande,
“lightning, great hail, a wall falls into the Garonne.”
Another of Nostradamus’s passage is also believed to contain a warning about natural cataclysms including global sea levels rising.
Century VI, Quatrain 20 reads: “Peace and plenty for a long time the place will praise:
“Throughout his realm the fleur-de-lis deserted:
“Bodies dead by water, land one will bring there,
“Vainly awaiting the good fortune to be buried there.”
