October 11 - On this day in history...

On October 11th, in 1634, a strong storm developed off the coast of Schleswig-Holstein, the northernmost state in Germany. The storm created enormous waves that flooded the coastline and caused what is known as the "Buchardi Flood," also known as the "second Grote Mandrenke." Between 8,000 and 15,000 people died as a result of the storm.
