Many in the St. Louis region have been affected by the recent flooding. People have died, lives disrupted, property damaged, etc.

Flooding, like tornados. are often called an “Act of God.”

“Acts of God,” for insurance purposes, are defined as events that occur through natural causes and could not be avoided through the use of caution and preventative measures. In essence, the phrase “Acts of God” refers to natural disasters.

The phrase generally brings to mind hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, hail, or floods. However, the lines can be fuzzier than most people realize. (CBS News)

This is the subject of today’s poll:

This poll will close at 8pm tonight.
