FRENCH physi­cian Michel de Nostredame – or Nostradamus – was the great­est psy­chic who ever lived, proven to have pre­dicted world-shak­ing events that would oc­cur more than 500 years af­ter his death.

Writ­ten in old French and pub­lished in 1555, his book Les Propheties con­tained 942 po­etic qua­trains that fore­cast the fu­ture, in­clud­ing the rise of Hitler, the atomic bomb, the as­sas­si­na­tions of John F. Kennedy and his brother Bobby, and the moon land­ing.

Amaz­ingly, one mind­bog­gling verse — “Two steel birds will fall from the sky on the Metropo­lis … the sky will burn” — fore­told the 9/11 ter­ror at­tack that brought down the twin tow­ers of New York City’s World Trade Cen­ter!

Here are Nostradamus’ star­tling dooms­day pre­dic­tions for 2019:

1. A comet will blot out the sun for two months in the spring, trig­ger­ing a world­wide famine.

2. Hur­ri­canes will slam the land­locked states of Ken­tucky, Ten­nessee and Ok­la­homa.
