    But for Hamburg this does not matter… Water from rainfall (we call it “Oberflächenwasser”) has no real effect on the water level in Hamburg. Remember, a normal tide will make the water rise or fall 4000mm within 6 hours. The few drops from Berlin will not make a difference.

    The “Elbe Flooding” from 2013 made the tide in Hamburg about 50cm higher than normal tide. That’s less than 4 Beaufort wind from Northwest will do.

    Hamburg gets flooded by Saltwater, not sweet water, if it gets flooded at all.
