David Cameron surveyed the extent of the flood damage in north Norfolk today as he visited a town hit by last week's tidal surge.
The Prime Minister met residents of Wells-next-the-Sea whose properties were damaged as the tide reached the highest level on record.
Mr Cameron paid tribute to the emergency services and flood wardens for their response, but said more could be done.
He said: "These were terrible floods and it was a very difficult event but the resilience of people here in Norfolk must be praised."
Some parts of the UK are have seen the worst storm surge in 60 years, but we are not out of the danger yet.
A combination of factors are combining to make this storm surge particularly powerful.
Water levels around the UK could be higher than in the storm surge of 1953, but thanks to flood defences the impact is likely to be smaller.
