This Monday morning aboard a backhoe loader, Sylvie is about to find her house flooded. Yesterday, she hurriedly evacuated her like about sixty residents of Esquelbecq. Inside, she discovers the extent of the damage, stunned. “I’m sad. Underwater, you can’t do anything,” she says.

In a 300-meter-long street, the most affected, Tony also comes to see the damage. Here the water has reached one meter. This Monday morning the decline is slow, but the household appliances are still floating. “I’ve been here for fifteen years, I’ve never had this,” he says. A little further on, the water receded. It’s time for cleaning at Yvette’s. Outside, a lot remains to be done, but near the henhouse, Yvette is smiling a little.

In memory of residents, we had never seen that in Esquelbecq. A meter of water in a few hours, Claudine, retired, was able to count on the invaluable help of her children. Cleaning and pumping operations will continue in Esquelbecq, at least for a few days.
