Pat Robertson predicts storm strikes

This week, Rev. Pat Robertson of The 700 Club has predicted that in the next year there will be numerous storm strikes on the East Coast and a possible tsunami on the West Coast. EVERYONE PANIC!!! In other news, the sky is blue, and the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Oh, and it's sweeps week.

From the Associated Press:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- The Rev. Pat Robertson says God has told him that storms and possibly a tsunami will hit America's coastline this year.

The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network has told viewers of "The 700 Club" that the revelations came to him during his annual personal prayer retreat in January.

"If I heard the Lord right about 2006, the coasts of America will be lashed by storms," Robertson said May 8.

He added specifics in Wednesday's show.

"There well may be something as bad as a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest," he said.

Robertson has come under intense criticism in recent months for suggesting that U.S. agents should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine retribution for Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip.
