Future shock schlock

Bernard Henri Lévy claims to have foreseen the Katrina disaster while staying in New Orleans to write his book about the USA.

"The trip was under three shadows. The shadow of the war in Iraq, the shadow of an election, and the shadow of Katrina, ..." The hurricane hadn’t struck at the time he was writing the book. "The anti-ci-pated shadow of Katrina, as you see. I was in New Orleans four or five months before Katrina, and I more or less foresee what is going to happen."
