An inn-keeper, rescued after su- Derhuman efforts, fell dead from s stroke. A young girl watched Irelplessy as her mother and two sisters died. A father was rescued clutching his tiny infant, born two months prematurely In a flood' menaced attic. A 10-year-old gir' carried to safety was the only survivor of her family—father, mothei and eight brothers and sisters.

The Zeeland section of Southwes Holland and the Thames Estuary of Southeast England emerged a the chief centers of death, destruc tion and misery wrought by i : n hurricane fanned giant waves ant tides which crashed inland over th' weekend, smashing everything in their paly. Many sections of Holland sti! were isolated, with as yet un recorded dead. Early today, -1 hours after the I disaster struck, word finally reached Amsterdam that 200 people had drowned in the tiny village of Stavenlsse. An exhausted messenger from the burgomaster of Oude Tonge, etsgsered to safety telling of 180 corpses piled high in a shed, on the twin islands of Goeree and Over- flakke. The same messenger said 1,500 people had spent 'their Ihird night on an open dike, in sleet and snow, without water or medicine . Another 70 persons were tntss- ing from the village of Stellendam, on the same island. Froin dozens of stricken towns and villages in Holland and England the refugees flowed into hastily set up camps and centers. Many of them were ill, most of them hungry, all of them homeless. With communications still svldels disrupted, Dutch officials as yet could make no accurate estimate f the missing or homeless. Up to ,500 square miles were estimated ended—most of the 23 islands o eeland and South Holland anc nd some of the world's richest oil. More than 50 Dutch cities owns and villages had reported eaths so far. Estimates placer! the total Brit- _h missing at between 600 and ,000. Britain counted about 35,000 Vomeless and 250,000 acres of land tootled.
