    One of the dikes near Gammelhavn has burst, and water is on its way towards the centre of Aabenraa.

    Emergency Services South Jutland advises that residents living on the following streets should consider evacuating, especially if they reside on the ground floor and do not have the option to move to higher floors or feel uncomfortable doing so.

    If you have nowhere to go, you can head to Folkehjem at Haderslevvej 7, 6200 Aabenraa, where police and firefighters are present. Here, you can spend the night or stay until you have the opportunity to be picked up by family or friends.

    Call 1-1-4 if you need assistance with this.

    According to the police, the following streets are affected (see map).
