Wifflesnook Posted December 6, 2013 Report Share Posted December 6, 2013 Dear friends I live on the edge of the North Sea in Kilnsea! Yorkshire. Last night we had the worst storm surge since the floods of 1953. Our village has been badly hit. I suspect out of the 28 properties three quarters have water inside. The fields are flooded with salt water. I am fine. Our house is a bit away from the sea and river Humber on a minuscule hill. I don't think anyone has been injured and I know everyone has rallied round. I'm going to take dog for a walk soon to see the damage. This was forecast but we didn't expect it to be so bad. In 1953 thousands died along the east coast but now flood defences and warnings are better. But it is still life changing for those affected. Just thought I'd let you know, Jan And of course I feel this harder without my beloved Pete by my side Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
