Nostradamus ‘predicted deadly European heatwave for 2023’ with chilling accuracy

French astrologer Michel de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus, seemingly predicted the scorching heatwave that is currently baking much of Europe.

Nostradamus' infamous book Les Prophéties, published nearly 500 years ago, has been credited with making a number of predictions that came true including the French Revolution, the rise of Adolf Hitler and atomic bombs being dropped on Japan.

A book reinterpreting his work, released in 2005, even suggested he predicted the Queen's death in 2022 (it flew to the top of The Sunday Times bestsellers list after it as a result).

Now, one of Nostradamus' predictions for 2023 appears to have come true, and contains some unnerving exact detail regarding Europe's heatwave.

Alluding to scorching weather and rising sea temperatures, he wrote: "Like the sun the head shall sear the shining sea: The Black Sea’s living fish shall all but boil.

"When Rhodes and Genoa half-starved shall be, the local folk to cut them up shall toil."

The Greek island of Rhodes has been one of the places most impacted by the sweltering heat, with temperatures there reaching 40C.

Wildfires have also broken out and one British family decided to abandon their £2,500 holiday and fly back from Rhodes this week.

Sally Urwin, who was visiting with her teenage sons, said: "It was suffocating. I've worked in Texas and all over the globe, but it was just suffocating.

"It made you feel faint and dizzy. It could make you feel unwell and we lost our appetites – we couldn’t eat much. In the future if I went somewhere in southern Europe I would go in May and avoid July and August.

"Especially with children, I'll definitely change my plans in the future and avoid places like that this time of year."

A yellow heatwave alert has been issued in Genoa, although the city in the north of Italy is by no means the Italian city most affected.

Elsewhere in the country temperatures have reached into the low 40Cs. There have also been multiple heat-related deaths.

The current record temperature for Europe is 48.8C (in Sardinia in 2021). Weather experts have warned that could soon be topped.
