Didn't a gold rush result after the last serious flooding? Or am I thinking of the wrong place?

And now the big clean-up begins. I doubt much of the inevitable damage will have been insured. :cry:

There, didn't I tell you? Looks as though there's a silver lining. The residents are all going to get rich, and live happily ever after :D

If the choice was between risking the dam failing or flooding the river valley, then he was a bright spark. If not, T.I.T.

No, he wasn't. The bright thing to have done would be release the water gradually over a period of days after studying weather and tide reports and anticipating heavy rains. Not flooding two towns, a major hospital, many schools and countless homes.
