Will Big Easy turn into Big Soup Bowl ? New Orleans faces destruction

September 14, 2004 - not just another historic day, when Mexico beated the US in this race (Jeanne was born a couple days too late) :
country threatened by TWO cat. 5 hurricanes - Ivan, Javier (unprecedented)
... but because it marks the entry in a new era - the global superstorm

Below the ONLY article (October 2002) that google could find, September 14, 2004, about the facts. This as Ivan started heading directly into New Orleans and finally the first press article on the subject (Associated Press) appeared.

---- Why is New Orleans so vulnerable? Try these three main reasons: (October 2002)
My comment on the article : this time isn't a new cycle of hurricane intensity ...

--- People who stick their head in the mud, pardon, sand (from the AP article, September 14, 2004)

The worst storm in recent decades to hit New Orleans was Hurricane Betsy in 1965, which submerged parts of the city in water 7-feet deep and was blamed for 74 deaths in Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida. That storm was a Category 3, weaker than Ivan is expected to be.

Even if New Orleans escapes this time, van Heerden said, it will remain vulnerable until the federal and state governments act to restore the
coastalwetlands that should act as a buffer against storms coming in from the Gulf.

Louisiana has lost about a half million acres of coast to erosion since 1930 because the Mississippi River is so corralled by levees that it can dump
sediment only at its mouth, and that allows waves from the Gulf to chop away at the rest of the coastline.

"My fear is, if this storm passes (without a major disaster), everybody forgets about it until next year, when it could be even worse because we'll have even less wetlands," van Heerden said.

Great post.

I just posted on a different thread about Hurricane Ivan, but the wording of the Nostradamus quatrain just sounded so much like your thread that I feel compelled to repost the quatrain here. I would love to read others take on this.

Garden of the world near the new city,
In the path of the hollow mountains:
It will be seized and plunged into the Tub,
Forced to drink waters poisoned by sulfur."

Most of that seems to have come from an article in Science World 18th October 2002.

When pasting from an external source please just give a snippet and a link. Please edit your post accordingly and include the AP link.

September 14, 2004 - the age of global superstorms starts
September 14, 2004- country (Mexico) threatened by TWO 130 miles+ hurricanes - Ivan, Javier (unprecedented)
September 16, 2004 - latest data proves that Jeanne is now a hurricane, even if NHC doesn't to upgrade it. Three hurricanes from the Caribbean to the Gulf of California

Update :
Check the current status, in the animation that started this thread

There are more unprecedent things visible right now :
- the first time that a new born hurricane (hours old) manages to survive the highest mountains in the Caribbean (Dominican Republic)
- the depression that took the shortest time ever to turn into a hurricane (Karl, eastern Atlantic)

Here's another problem.

In some pics of the storm, I saw guys in business suits wading chest-deep through water.

Now what the hell was so important that they went out in a cat 5 storm for, huh?

Ignorance seems to be another big factor here, and people lacking common sense.

There were around 150 people reading this ATS thread.
But there quite a number more reading this National Geographic article, that was published one month later:

Gone With The Water


It was a broiling August afternoon in New Orleans, Louisiana, the Big Easy, the City That Care Forgot. Those who ventured outside moved as if they were swimming in tupelo honey. Those inside paid silent homage to the man who invented air-conditioning as they watched TV "storm teams" warn of a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. Nothing surprising there: Hurricanes in August are as much a part of life in this town as hangovers on Ash Wednesday.
But the next day the storm gathered steam and drew a bead on the city. As the whirling maelstrom approached the coast, more than a million people evacuated to higher ground. Some 200,000 remained, however—the car-less, the homeless, the aged and infirm, and those die-hard New Orleanians who look for any excuse to throw a party.
The storm hit Breton Sound with the fury of a nuclear warhead, pushing a deadly storm surge into Lake Pontchartrain. The water crept to the top of the massive berm that holds back the lake and then spilled over. Nearly 80 percent of New Orleans lies below sea level—more than eight feet below in places—so the water poured in. A liquid brown wall washed over the brick ranch homes of Gentilly, over the clapboard houses of the Ninth Ward, over the white-columned porches of the Garden District, until it raced through the bars and strip joints on Bourbon Street like the pale rider of the Apocalypse. As it reached 25 feet (eight meters) over parts of the city, people climbed onto roofs to escape it.

Thousands drowned in the murky brew that was soon contaminated by sewage and industrial waste. Thousands more who survived the flood later perished from dehydration and disease as they waited to be rescued. It took two months to pump the city dry, and by then the Big Easy was buried under a blanket of putrid sediment, a million people were homeless, and 50,000 were dead. It was the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States.
When did this calamity happen? It hasn´t—yet. But the doomsday scenario is not far-fetched. The Federal Emergency Management Agency lists a hurricane strike on New Orleans as one of the most dire threats to the nation, up there with a large earthquake in California or a terrorist attack on New York City. Even the Red Cross no longer opens hurricane shelters in the city, claiming the risk to its workers is too great........

We know now who were the End Times Prophets. There were only THREE: the chidren of Fatima, George Orwell and Matt Marriott
We know Vladimir Putin is the Great King ressuscitated by God to lead God's angelic warriors in the final battle of Armageddon, now coming to an end.

But who were the Prophets of the Last Days of Evil?
We can now answer the question, since it is June 2007 and EVERY word was spoken. The puzzle is completed.
IT IS TOO LATE for any new Prophets. The List is FINISHED.

The End Times Prophets were:
- the three chidren of Fatima. They came 1917, three years after the begin of End Times and months before the first official atheist state in the world, the Soviet Union. The prophets of the first generation of End Times.
- George Orwell, the prophet of the second generation of End Times.
- Matt Marriott, the prophet of the third and last generation of End Times.
