The flood disaster in 1953 occurred at Schelphoek, near the village Serooskerke, one of the largest current holes on Schouwen-Duiveland with a length of 500 meters. Because of the big one depth, the hole could not be closed and there is a ring dike placed around it. In the area between the ring dike and the old dike a beautiful nature reserve has been created with drying mudflats and salt marshes. In the former working port Schelphoek there are three caissons and a shipwreck.
