The late Bulgarian mystic was known for her startling ability to forecast the future. After she passed away in 1996, she left predictions for each year up until 5079, and it appears that she’s correct with one of them.
For those unfamiliar with Baba Vanga, she was born Vangelia Gushterov and is said to have obtained the capacity to foresee the future after losing her sight at age 12.
During her lifetime she garnered a pretty huge following, apparently predicting everything from Princess Diana’s death, 9/11, and Barak Obama’s presidency.
So, what did she predict for 2022?
Baba Vanga said that parts of Asia and Australia would be hit by intense floods, which has actually happened down under as much of the east coast of Australia has had to cope with flooding this year.
Still, that’s not the only one of the mystic’s predictions to be realized this year, she also suggested that large cities would be hit by a drought, followed up by massive water shortages.
And, on Friday 12 August, a drought was officially declared in the UK.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) confirmed that parts of the South West, parts of southern and central England, and the East of England will be moved into drought status.
Depending on your local water company, the restrictions could include hosepipe bans for millions of people, canals being closed to boats, and additional measures to protect wildlife.
The news came after the Met Office revealed that the UK saw just 56 percent (46.3mm) of its average rainfall last month, making it the driest July in over 20 years.
And the UK isn’t the only country to prove Baba Vanga right, because countries across Europe, including Portugal and Italy are urging people to conserve water supplies.
Italy is currently facing its worst drought since the 1950s.
So, now that two of Baba Vanga’s predictions have come true, what else did she say we could expect in 2022?
The mystic predicted that researchers would discover a lethal virus in Siberia, which would then lead to another pandemic.
She also said that there would be famine in India with temperature plunges causing locus swarms.
Baba Vanga also said that aliens will arrive by an asteroid and there would be a virtual reality take over, which given some of Meta’s new plans, doesn’t seem that far-fetched.
