Ark Encounter Owners Sue Over Flood Damage

(CNN)They don't build them like they used to. Owners of a replica of Noah's Ark are suing their insurers, saying the companies failed to adequately cover damage caused by heavy rain.
The Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky, features a 510-foot wooden ship modeled after the biblical ark.
In a suit filed in the Eastern District of Kentucky this week, the park alleges its insurers acted in bad faith after investigating damage to the property.
The park owners say rainfall in 2017 and 2018 caused a "significant landslide" on the property. That landslide undermined an access road leading to the ark, making it unsafe to use and raking up some $1 million in damage, according to court documents.

The suit claims that representatives from five of the park's insurers inspected the damage and told the owners to proceed with repairs. The owners said those repairs cost "approximately $1 million," and the insurers have only paid "a very small portion."
Park owners are seeking punitive and compensatory damages.

10. IT'S OBAMA'S FAULT!



The fools will be forced to close, and then, they'll have to find a buyer with an old-testament obscession!

Or, tear it all apart and sell the splinters!

2. What insurance companies call "an act of god."

Get with your roots, Ark Encounter. Your god is testing you. Suck it up and quit shirking and blame-shifting.

Irony served wet.

3. Just wait till it rains for 40 days and 40 nights.

God won't be returning their phone calls.

7. Poor copy editing

The article states, "...features a 510-foot wooden ship..."

That isn't a ship. It's a building that looks like a boat. It doesn't float. It has no propulsion or steering. It ain't going anywhere.

Regardless, the irony of the story and the hypocrisy of The Ark Encounter are delicious this Saturday morning.

11. Why doesn't the owner sue God?

After all, God caused the flood, not the insurance company.
