Extreem hoog water in de Zuiderzee vóór de ramp door aanhoudende noordwestenwind. Dagenlange regen had bovendien de - slecht onderhouden - dijken verslapt. Noordwaarts ruimende wind joeg in de ochtend van 14 januari1916 het water over de Waterlandse Zeedijk, die bij Katwoude en Uitdam brak. Hierdoor liep praktisch de hele regio Waterland onder. Tussen Zaandam, Purmerend en Edam tot aan het IJ bij Amsterdam had het water vrij spel. Ook de verschillende polder- en ringdijken verdwenen goeddeels onder. Tevens brak de Amsteldijk bij Anna-Paulownapolder. Hier kwamen 2 mensen om het leven.

Extremely high water in the Zuiderzee before the disaster by persistent northwest wind. Days of rain had also weakened the - poorly maintained - dikes. At the morning of Januari 14th 1916 Northern wind hunted the water over the Waterlandse Zeedijk, that broke at Katwoude and Uitdam. Practically the entire region in Waterland was flooded. Between Zaandam, Edam Purmerend to the IJ in Amsterdam, the water had free reign. The ring dikes and polders largely gone under. Also the Amsteldijk at Anna Pavlovna Polder. Here two people died.
