On 12 November 2010 we experienced a spectacular storm surge which caused the Terschelling port area to be flooded. Supported by some photos we provide this high tide ‘with a face’, that is: we lift the surge above the domain of bare numbers. But it is also indicated how rare such an event is and how much worse it can be.
