Dozens of houses and farms are at risk of flooding in the Diksmuide region: “No one has had to evacuate yet, but plans are ready” | Flooding in the Westhoek

Mayor of Diksmuide Lies Laridon (CD&V) did not sleep much last night. “I have woken up many times to check the water level. Although coordination is in the hands of the province, I feel responsible. This morning we are sitting together again to discuss how to proceed,” she responds. It remains to be seen what effect the opening of the Sint-Joris lock will have had.
