Good News For Tortuga Island; But Still Deadly
2004 09 25
By Mitch Battros - ECTV
Although a tragic and deadly catastrophe has in fact occurred, the latest news sheds light on a better ending for Tortuga Island.
Having gathered several news sources, the task of putting a puzzle together has taken place. The original confirmation as reported by several international news agencies, some of which were provided in the last ECTV newsletter, was authentic and based on eyewitness reports. The main source of those reports came from two United Nations helicopter crews who were dispatched to assess the damage to Tortuga caused by hurricane ‘Jeanne’. When they made their first few flybys, all they could see was washed out land. Or perhaps better put, no land at all. It has been reported the broadcast which came over the UN radio was (parts may be lost in translation) “the island is gone. I can only see large waves”.
As this UN tandem helicopter crew continued aerial surveillance, bodies were seen floating in the water. It may have been hundreds washed away by high winds and tsunami like waves. It is not hard to see how this tandem crew put two and two together to complete a visual, and make their report as posted by several news agencies including ECTV.
What was officially reported by UN representatives was based on the above observations. So indeed, it looked to them as though the Island of Tortuga had vanished, and all its 26,000 inhabitants were gone. The not so good news is that in fact, thousands have died, many of which were seen floating in the waters around Tortuga and Haiti. The search & rescue operation continues.
Folks, by no means do I wish to paint some sort of rosy picture just because only two or three thousand have died, not 26,000. It is truly a disaster which has occurred and is ongoing. The death count is still unfinished. The prognosis for Central American, Coastal Islands, and the US Eastern Coast is at best “guarded”. The future is uncertain, and new tropical storms and renewed hurricanes have yet to subside.
I’m happy to say the news about Tortuga is a better one. The idea of 26,000 people to disappear within an one hours time, if not minutes, was a shocking reality check. Could this really happen? Yes it can. Will it happen? I guarantee it. When will it happen and where? Only Great Spirit knows. But I can say with certainty, our ancestors have told us of these times over and over again. It is all about “cycles”. As the Maya say “we are in a time of transition”. And the Hopi’s “we shall enter the 5th world. Life will end….as we know it”.
