The coast guard keeps an eye on the sea

Severe storm warning

From Thursday 05/12 afternoon until Friday 06/12 noon, a severe storm with northwesterly winds locally reaching 11 to 12 Bft will strike the whole North Sea and push seawater towards the Belgian coastline.

The combination of wind and high water can result in unusually high water levels. At 3 o'clock Friday morning the water is predicted to reach its highest level.  Wind speed may reach up to 90 kilometers an hour and the water level may reach 6, 1 meters. Several of our coast guard partners keep a close watch on the situation.
