"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.

Yeah, it looked pretty bad from what we saw on TV. There has been some bad flooding in the UK as well, especially in the low lying area's such as Lincolnshire.
