The highest water level was reached last night. It came close to the critical limit. It's going down slowly now.

No flooding in my village. But we remain alert.

The level of the Maas (a rriver) is extremely high. It will be exciting in my village for the next few hours. How high does the water level get? Should we evacuate? Will the flood defenses hold up?

I expect it to end well.
