The North Sea flood was caused by a heavy storm and affected the Netherlands, Belgium, England, and Scotland. 2,551 persons were killed. As a consequence, the Netherlands developed the Delta Works, an extensive system of dams and storm surge barriers and the UK constructed storm surge barriers on the River Thames.
