Water, water everywhere

With Hurricane Isaac hogging all of the attention, you might miss a close-up look by the Star-Ledger at the frequently flooded Lost Valley in Manville or their larger call for better infrastructure in NJ before our next hurricane. Road damage included washing away a bit of an Interstate, huge swathsof the state without power, and then there were the dams:
"Six dams failed during the storm and another 14 were damaged, according to the Department of Environmental Protection. For the most part, repairs have been made where needed, while other low-risk dams were allowed to wash away."
Good reading while you wait for Hurrican Leslie.
