On the island of Terschelling for tomorrow also no cleaning actions are planned, but that is not to say that the stocking off. “That seems to be now positive, but we are watching with fear and trembling to Tuesday. Is there a north-west wind and spring tides are predicted. We fear that there a lot of debris washes ashore,” says Marjolein Izeboud, spokesman of the municipality of Terschelling. “Also in the (near) future, therefore, we probably would like to call on you,” says Van Gent. the

Environmental organisations, The North sea, the wadden sea society, the World wildlife fund and the national trust fear that the cleaning of the beaches still be weeks, or longer, can last. They will as much as possible to help, but they count on “action and coordination” of the government. The Royal Army continues through tomorrow afternoon on the island of Schiermonnikoog.
