Hoog Water High Water

Deventer vanaf de brug

Regen, regen, regen…..
Deze week bereikte het water in de Nederlandse rivieren haar hoogste stand
Voorlopig…..
want de enorme hoeveelheden sneeuw die in de Alpen zijn gevallen zullen smelten en nog meer water naar Nederland voeren.

Rain, rain, rain….
This week the water in the Dutch rivers reached its highest level
For the time being…
for the enormous amount of snow that has fallen in the Alpes will melt and bring more water to the Netherlands.

Toen ik deze foto’s nam was het peil van de IJssel bij Deventer  5.89 m boven NAP. De hoogste stand die week.

When I took these pictures the level of the River IJssel was 5.89m/ 19.3 ft  above NAP. NAP is sealevel. More than half of the Netherlands is situated beneath sealevel! It is protected by dykes and dunes against the water.
