30 spelling mistakes on a new monolith

The townhall of Alzira (Alicante) is in hot water after it erected a 4.32 metre high monolith remembering a 1982 flood that devastated the town, but committed over 30 spelling mistakes on the engraving.

Tous dam broke one day in 1982, and the river Júcar broke its banks, flooding the town. The monolith shows how high the flash flood was.

Missing accents, bad punctuation, grammatical errors and spelling mistakes riddle the inscription. The townhall has promised to fix it as quickly as possible, but refuses to speculate on how much the repairs will cost.
