Premonition can be defined as “a strong feeling that something is about to happen, especially something unpleasant”

Haven’t you ever felt something bad’s going to happen and it actually does? Some people choose to believe in it, some people call it a hunch. Whatever you may call it, there’s no denying the fact that sometimes these visions actually came true. Although there’s no scientific explanation for it.

Let’s have a look at some of the stories of the people who famously predicted major disasters:

After the major tragedy that struck RMS Titanic on 15 April 1912, many people came forward with claims of having foreseen the disaster. Whether or not they truly had a premonition is a different story altogether. But the most intriguing story that stands out is of the novelist Morgan Robertson. He famously wrote a novella “The wreck of the titan” describing the events of the drowning of a ship and the casualties caused due to the lack of lifeboats. The events described in the book are eerily similar to the sinking of RMS Titanic. What makes this story stand out among others is that this novella was written in 1898, much before the Titanic was even conceptualized.
