Hey, that's gonna be interesting. I am only aware of the following
- great flood of 19 Dec 1340 from Britanny to the North Sea, due to
an astronomical line-up of sun & moon coinciding with a storm,
I think that was the event during which the agrarian plain around
Mont St.Michel in Normandy was turned into a tidal flat,
- 16 Jan 1362 Stormflood, loss of Rungholt and a part of Sylt,
North Frisia, Germany; formation of the embayments of Jade and
Dollart in East Frisia, Germany
- 1436 Halloween Flood in North Frisia, loss of Rantum and Eidum,
two villages on Sylt;
- 11 Oct 1634 "Grosse Manndränke" (Great Drowning), Island
of Nordstrand split in two
Do you have more?
