Tortuga Island Disaster Now Confirmed
2004 09 24

I have now received no less than six news agency confirmations reporting the small island of Tortuga has “vanished”. The entire island along with its 26,000 inhabitants have been washed away by “large waves”. This unthinkable event happened as a result of hurricane ‘Jeanne’, which has also killed over 2,000 people and displaced 250,000 in Haiti.
An expedition of United Nations officials were dispatched via two helicopters to evaluate the damage to the island of “Tortuga”. A radio transmission was sent back to base on the island of Haiti. The message stated “we can’t find the island”. It is reported the tandem UN helicopters circled for a long period, most likely in stark disbelief nothing was to be found. Not a trace of life or land. It is now reported all 26,000 may have perished.
I’m not sure I have ever heard of such a disaster. I know of tsunami’s having killed hundreds, maybe even a few thousand, but I have never heard of a whole community being wiped out in minutes. Total families are gone. A complete island missing. And a hurricane who has yet to see the end of its deadly way.
The Russian news agency “Gorodfm” filed the following report:
(As translated) “United Nations helicopters made flight over that area but have seen only storming sea. The area of Tortuga is 180 square kilometers; population is made 26 000 human beings. Today helicopters of the United Nations will make repeated flight of region.”
