- the Wind keeps on until Wednesday, and it sends more and more water into the Limfjord. It provides a great deal of extra water inside the Fjord. It looks the worst out Wednesday morning until the wind subsides. So begins the water to seep out again, says vagtchef Klaus Larsen.

the water level is expected first to slow down late Wednesday or overnight into Thursday.

DMI writes further that the strong wind combined with elevated water levels can result in major coastal flooding and significant damage to the building and kystsikringer.
