Great Floods are from, 1. Either ſudden and violent, or long and great Rains. 2. From Tides and great Land Floods joined. 3. From oppoſite Winds forcing up the Sea, and damming back the Land Floods at the ſame Time, as on October 1ſt, 1250, September 30th, 1555, October 22d, 1629, November 1660, November 1665, March 10th, 1570, September 6th, 1592, December 1600, December 26th, 1601, February 23d and 24th, 1602, March 1604 ; in all which the great Tide-Rivers had both the Tide driven impetuouſly in by the Wind or Hurricane, and the Land Flood kept up, to an incredible Deſtruction of Peoples Lands and Cattle. Or, 4. From the Perigæum of the Moon, eſpecially in its firſt and laſt Quarters, wherein it comes nearer the Earth ; as on November the 5th, 1530, when that fatal Inundation happened in Zealand ; January 13th, 1592, Sandwich and the Marſhes were over flooded ; November 1st, 1570, Antwerp and the Coaſts of Holland were laid under Water ; December 8th, 1600 ; January 20th, 1670, the Severn laid Somerſet and Glouceſter under Water ; January 23d, 1623, Frieſland was drowned ; February 23d, 1651 ; August 2d, 1657 ; August 22d, 1658 ; September 29th, 1661 ; May 24th, 1663 ; September 1ſt, 1669 ; with a Multitude of others, according to Dr. Wallis. Such Inundations may happen from the diurnal, annual, and menſtrual Motions of the Earth.
