this pole on the beach shows how high the sea was at very extreme times. In 1953 3/4 of the Island was under water. Salt seawater, which is a disaster for land and houses. That's why there is hardly any forest and old houses have salt in the walls. #sadness #smfc

el murko: Wow! Living on an island prone to storm surges, I know well what this means. Luckily I've only seen 2-3m in my time here, but 7-8m is possible given a big enough hurricane.

karin :): 2 -3 meters is normal here. we live under sea level. But dunes and dikes protect us better these days. But never say never..
