HAMBURG (dpa-AFX) – After a storm surge warning on Tuesday night for the Hamburg Elbe area and the East and North Frisian coast, there is a warning of another storm surge on Tuesday morning.
On Tuesday, the flood level on the East Frisian coast is expected to be 1 to 1.5 meters higher and around 1.5 meters higher than the mean flood on the North Frisian coast and in the Weser and Elbe areas. According to the police, the water in Hamburg will rise slightly higher than on Tuesday night. But these are not extremely dramatic values, said a spokeswoman for the water level forecast and storm surge warning service in Hamburg on Tuesday morning.
Despite the storm surge warning during the night, the police situation centers in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein reported a comparatively calm situation. There were no flood-related operations. In Hamburg, the fish market and the parking lot at the fish auction hall were partially under water.
The German Weather Service is expecting stormy weather conditions for Tuesday. A storm depression could cause gusts of up to 80 kilometers per hour on the coast. Heavy gusts of up to 100 kilometers per hour are expected on the North Sea on Wednesday night./hae/DP/zb
