causing big problems for coastal areas.


In the village of Jaywick, in the southeast of England,


Emergency services are getting ready and evacuation centres,


We've got exceptionally strong winds, between 40

around five miles long, to create a pool in the middle.


Then large machines called turbines would be placed


When the sea level is high, and the pool level is low,


water will get sucked through the turbine


into the pool, creating power as it moves through it.


And when the water in the pool is high but the sea level is low,


the water will flow back out in the reverse direction,
