Warning of 100-year flood in Denmark
Unusually high water levels now threaten Denmark. According to forecasts from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), parts of the country may experience a 100-year flood.

If you are in Denmark or have plans to travel there over the next day, you should be extra careful.

DMI expects flooding in the most vulnerable areas where the water level could reach up to 1.8 meters above normal levels.

Residents of those areas most at risk in Denmark are encouraged to avoid all unnecessary traffic from 16:00 Wednesday to Thursday morning.

"Protect yourself and your property. Strong winds combined with elevated water levels will cause major coastal flooding and significant damage to buildings and coastal protection," states the warning from DMI.

- When we're up in the categories of "very dangerous weather" where we have 1.3-1.8 meters raise in the inner Danish waters, it's pretty violent, warns communication meteorologist Mogens Rønnebek of DMI to Berlingske.

The last time the alert "very dangerous weather" was used, was during Bodil-storm in 2013. It caused severe damage, particularly in the area of ​​Roskilde.

- In some places, we are talking about a hundred years event. It comes at Langeland and south of Funen where we expect the water level will rise the most, says Mogens Rønnebek.

DMI operates with five different categories of hazardous weather, "The risk of severe weather," "severe weather", "dangerous weather," "very dangerous weather" and "extremely dangerous weather."

Residents and tourists are requested to comply with advice and warnings from the Danish authorities.
