Tortuga Island... Washed
Away By Jeanne?


Good News For Tortuga Island; But Still Deadly
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 ëJeanneí. 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.
In Summary:
Iím 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".
Next week I will have Adam Rubel as my guest. Adam has been a regular guest of ECTV, and provides the latest news from Mayan Elders. Perhaps he can shed some light as to the days, months and years ahead.

Here is news search of Tortuga:
If foreign countries know about Tortuga, why don't English speaking nations know about it?
I repeat - the news coming from Pravda is like reading the National Enquirer. Good luck on whether its the truth or not. From what I see, its not.
Here is another persons reply to Mitch's article:
Well I just called a Travel Agent Friend of mine to see if I could get some Hotel Reservations on this Island. Except of NOTE OF STORM DAMAGE, reservations on the island ARE being taken and booked. So I would think that the island is still there. (??) But he will look further into and report to me if anything comes up 'funny'.
Respectfully: Jerry ...
(Note: also communicated with a tourist director for the islands who confirmed there was damage, but the island far from "missing.")

To Whom It May Concern:,
It appears some person named Dee, or related group are trying to create a hoax.
ECTV stated clearly, in which no one could make any such mistake as presented by this group. The Russian article as presented in Mitch Battros- ECTV news release is from "Gorodfm" not Pravda. Mitch is well aware of Pravda, and more over people like the group mentioned who follow such nonsense.

ECTV Exclusive: Tortuga Island Disaster Now Confirmed
by Mitch Battros - ECTV
I have now received no less than six news agency confirmations reporting the s mall 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 wh o 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."
