    So we are expecting unbiased reporting from the Law Firm that’s handling the lawsuit?

    I rmeember seeing pics after the hurricane showing several casinos that were of the “floating” type that had been moved clear across the highway and were several hundred yards from the shoreline – but basically still “intact”. sure looked like it would take water to do that, rather than wind. maybe since the judge is in Nevada he has a soft spot for the gambling industry.

    As an engineer, I understand flooding is caused by several different “things”.
    1) Wind pushed water
    2) Gravity — the moon causes water to rise and fall.
    3) Rain — rivers get bigger when they carry more water.
    4) Seismic — causes all sorts of things; but, also causes really big waves.
    5) Human — damns break, pipes break, dicks break, culverts fail, designs are wrong.
    6) Snow and Ice — which turn to water; but as solid also plug up water ways.
    7) Ground absorbtion — some soil types shed more water when dry than moist.

    I would say in the case of hurricanes WIND AND WATER is the subject.
