Diary of islander Geert (57), surrounded by water in the Westhoek: “Today I saw a predatory fish hunting. In my driveway, eh!” | Flooding in West and East Flanders

Geert Beeckaert (57) is lonely on his island. In the past ten days, his remote family home in the Westhoek was completely surrounded by rising water. It was Dad versus Goliath this week. “On Wednesday afternoon I still had two centimeters left before the living room flooded, and on Thursday morning one more.” Diary of an islander.
