Famed fortune teller Nostradamus has already seen one of his 2024 predictions come true…
As soon as the clock struck midnight, many of us began to question exactly what 2024 would hold for us.
And when looking to the future, there’s one name that we can always rely on.
Michael de Nostradame, better known as Nostradamus, has been predicting the future for us since he rose to fame in the 16th century.
He’s had some remarkably accurate prophesies over the years, and some of his 2023 revelations left the internet shocked.
Since then, a selection of his 2024 predictions has also taken the internet by storm.
In fact, they’re so accurate that one has already come true, mere hours into the new year.

Nostradamus is known for hitting amazingly close to the mark when looking into the future.
It’s been claimed he accurately predicted JFK’s assassination, Hitler’s rise to power, the cost of living crisis, and even the Covid pandemic.
And for 2024, he’s prophesied a potential new pope, some problems within the royal family, and a potential war with China.
Not very cheerful.
But his final prediction, which might just be the scariest of all, has already started coming true on the second day of the new year!
Nostradamus issued a firm warning about extreme weather in 2024.
“The dry earth will grow more parched, and there will be great floods,” he predicts.
He also makes mention of a ‘very great famine through pestiferous wave’, suggesting tsunamis could destroy agriculture leading to food shortages in 2024.
And it appears he’s hit the nail on the head.

On January 1, a 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit Japan.
Residents were told to evacuate their homes in several areas to ensure their safety.
And even more chillingly, the earthquake also caused havoc under the ocean.
Warnings came in that the quake could cause a major tsunami, with waves reaching as high as 16.5ft (5m).
These waves engulfing the land could then lead to the flood predicted by Nostradamus, too.

The major tsunami warning was for Ishikawa, but there were also lower-level tsunami warnings or advisories for the rest of Honshu.
The northernmost of Japan’s main islands, Hokkaido, was also issued with tsunami warnings following the quake.
The earthquake shook Japan’s westerly coast, predominantly the Noto peninsula in Ishikawa prefecture on the main central island of Honshu.
Power was lost in many homes, and major infrastructure like rail and flights were disrupted.
Officials in Ishikawa prefecture confirmed four fatalities, with several residents of Wajima city, close to the quake’s epicentre, trapped under rubble.
“Residents need to stay on alert for further possible quakes and I urge people in areas where tsunamis are expected to evacuate as soon as possible,” Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said, as per The Guardian.
