If Feng Shui predictions are to be believed, are we seeing the predictions beginning to materialise so soon in the new year of the Dragon?

This year's Feng Shui Bazi Chart and Flying Star Chart indicate afflictions primarily in the South-east sector due to flooding as indicated by the predominant water and wood elements in the Bazi Chart for the Year of the Dragon. The Year of the Dragon began on Jan 23 2012 lasting until Feb 9 2013.
According to the Flying Star Chart, the countries potentially affected by the negativity would be the Asean region and Australia. The affliction would most probably be centered on floods including landslides, tsunamis, and so forth.
Let's look at the current scenario. Heavy rainfall has caused serious flooding affecting areas of Queensland in Australia, the danger area being St George (coincidentally in south-east Queensland). ST GEORGE'S mayor says mandatory evacuations are running smoothly as the town braces for record flooding.
Series of incidents so far:

On Monday, in The Philippines, a magnitude 6.7 quake struck near Tayasan town on central Negros island, damaging bridges, highways, some public buildings, and toppling power and communications lines. Churches and houses were also destroyed. The death toll from landslides has risen to 35 and scores of missing are feared dead as rains and aftershocks hamper rescue efforts, disaster officials said on Friday.
More than 1,400 aftershocks had been recorded since Monday, making it difficult for rescuers to search for survivors due to unstable ground and softened by several days of rains.
As for Malaysia and Singapore, the two countries have a better Bazi this year hence, we will not be having much excitement in the form of natural disasters. Keeping fingers crossed though.
Also, things will be looking up for the U.S. this year, the U.S. being in the Wealth Star (Star #8). A better economy ahead according to the reading. For your reference is the Flying Star Chart borrowed from Foong PC's blog.
Whether we believe in Feng Shui or not is immaterial. Nature will take its course regardless. The ability to interpret the Bazi Chart and Flying Star Chart provides a way to have an idea of what lies ahead.
