Kevin finally arrives to warn the local officials of Grommet’s nefarious scheme.
The explosion has destroyed the dyke, and the Van Loo family struggles to stay afloat among the flotsam. The panel in the lower left corner shows poor Elsa and her little dog (modeled after the Collins family’s former spaniel, Inky) struggling.

Here are the three episodes in color, as third-pages.
And here are a couple of Collins’ other renderings of Inky, from the 1930s.
