What are the consequences of the rising sea level for The Netherlands? On January 8th, 2019, a heavy Northwestern storm reached The Netherlands. The combination with spring tide caused floodings at the island of Terschelling. The quays of West Terschelling were overvlowed, as well as the area around the 'Wierschuur' at Eastern Terschelling. This happens more often because of the climate crisis. Phothograph: ©Kadir van Lohuizen / NOOR.
