"A very significant water event"

The city of Taunton, Massachusetts is apparently about to go all Ninth Ward, as last week's record rainfall threatens to break the 100-year-old Whittendon Pond Dam.
"I've got my fingers crossed that this thing is able to hold," Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney told a news conference at Taunton's city hall. "There is every prospect that it will give way and we'll have a very significant water event."

How many floods will it take til you know, that too many cities have drowned?

In case you've been wondering, the Rapture Index currently stands at 159. According to the web page, anything above 145 is "Fasten you seat belts."
