Donald Trump's presidency
In 2016's biggest surprise yet, Trump both described as shameless and audacious has been elected President and also Chief of Staff of the Army. The last line on the quatrain also predicted a city that is both on the rise because of fear.

He will be elected governor of the army:
The boldness of his contention,
The bridge broken, the city faint from fear

Atomic bombings of Japan
The catastrophic discovery nuclear technology led to disastrous outcomes as seen in the 1945 bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Nostradamus also foretold of these disasters.

crying to the great immortal God for relief."

Volcanic fire from the center of the earth
will cause trembling around the New City:
Two great rocks will make war for a long time.
Then Arethusa will redden a new river.
