    1. Unusual Marriage Behavior
    On Saturday November 23, 1963, the bride Grete Holm had to balance on a footbridge over the flooded Østergade. It became a run-in and photographers from the country's photo magazines were on hand.
    2. Unlucky parking
    Lemvig's east harbor turned out to be a bad parking lot on Dec. 3-4, 1999. At that time one of the most violent storms devastated Denmark and flooding hit Lemvig.
    3. Corridor in the auction room
    In 1965, the fish boxes had to be emptied in a hurry when a mixture of salt and sewage sludge rose up in the large fish auction hall by the water.
    4. intruder
    On December 5, 2013, storm Bodil hit the port of Lemvig. It smashed the port's west breakwater and when the storm subsided left 6 boats sunken.
    5. Tourist attraction
    In the 1960s, the frequent floods in Lemvig were a tourist attraction, attracting motorists from large parts of Jutland to 'Sunday drives'. Some were also allowed to demonstrate the vintage car on the same occasion.
    6. All men to the pumps
    During the major floods in the 1960s, the civil defense stepped in with its large pumps. They could absorb 2,000 liters of water per minute. The civil defense also helped lay sandbags and walkways.
    7. Post gondola
    After a violent westerly storm soaked the mail on October 18, 1967, it was hauled out in a rowboat. It was unusual for the postman to get help from civil defense.
    8. Vehicles in the city streets
    When the water receded, a major cleanup often awaited. Boats, fishing boxes and other things were scattered across the harbor area and sometimes as far as the church square.
    9. Where is the harbor edge?
    The fishmonger had to be visited in rubber boots or waders, and entering the harbor at high tide could be dangerous as the quay wall was difficult to see.
    10. Forward with the trowel
    Many doors along the harbor promenade were not secured with a shutter, which was able to keep some of the vandals out. Merchant Søe's shop was particularly vulnerable as the entrance was low.
    11. A thirsty soul
    The sight of all that water can make you thirsty. Here a rowboat is moored at the Girls' Staircase, one of the town's taverns.
