Is there any danger of floods or hurricanes in this area?

This is a fjord so the danger of flood isn't that high, btu flood may happend when hurricanes approaches. But the sea level usually don't go higher than 2-3m. The Stavanger area is often hit by hurricanes or storms, but Hinna Brygge is not in the most dangerous area. There are hills between the ocean and the towers protecting quite well. Many buildings in Norway is nowdays buitl to withstand earthquakes, even though earthquakes above 4-5 pints happends. But there has been incidents of earthquakes up to 7 points the last 200 years.
