"Noah's Ark" has flood damage? You just can't make this shit up!!!!

Actually, they're talking about the one in Kentucky. From the Weather Channel: Owners of Kentucky's Noah's Ark Attraction Sue Over Flooding Damage:

Here's the at a glance:

  • The owners of the Ark Encounter are asking for a $1 million settlement.

  • Heavy rains led to a landslide on the attraction's access road.

  • The ark itself was not damaged.

It may seem a bit ironic but the owners of Kentucky's Noah's ark attraction are suing their insurers over damage caused by flooding.

In a federal lawsuit, the owners of the Ark Encounter are asking for a $1 million settlement after the attraction's insurers, Allied World Assurance Co. Holdings of Switzerland and three other insurance companies, refused to cover damage after heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on its access road, the Courier Journal reports.

Opened in 2016, the 510-foot-long wooden ark has been a popular attraction in Williamstown, Kentucky.

The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages and stipulates that the ark itself was not damaged.

The ark is was reportedly built to the dimensions specified in the story of Noah in the Bible and is the largest timber-frame structure in the world.

1. No fan of Ken Ham by any means, but your title line is misleading

Because as you quoted in the body of your post, the Ark itself was not damaged.
