Sandy seen coming

LYN Bloomfield experienced a severe case of deja-vu when she turned on the TV and saw the news about hurricane Sandy earlier this week.

"I knew I had something similar to this and I got up to check," Ms Bloomfield said.

Attached to her various calendars over the past six years were a clipping from a page in the Warwick Daily News in 2006, predicting the massive New York storm.

"I'm not sure why I kept it," she said.

"I think it had something to do with the drought situation in Warwick at the time."

 

The article

"NY warned of huge hurricane

Washington: New York will one day be hit by a ferocious hurricane that will flood the streets and knock out the transport system, the director of the US National Hurricane Centre says.

Max Mayfield told a Senate committee a category three hurricane could raise the ocean level eight to 10m, in certain areas of New York, inundating the subway and paralysing one of the world's financial centres."
