Dutch Flood January 2012

A Dutch local resident, standing in his house, looks to high waters level through his window, in Dordrecht on January 5, 2012. Gale force winds reaching up to 110 kilometres (about 70 miles) an hour as well as heavy rains are expected along the Dutch coast. About a quarter of the country sits below sea level.

That’s hella scary. There’s a lot of hydrostatic pressure on the base of that wall, and I wouldn’t want to be standing there when it fails. [Found in here.]
