water system damage to palm trees?

Recently I have had a watering system (rotating sprinkler sort) installed in part of the garden ... I have noticed that the sprinkler near a mature Washingtonia palm tree is soaking the lower trunk of said tree ... ?is that soaking of trunk likely to cause damage to said palm tree?

Re: Local bank closing ... how do I?!

the more I think about this bank closing, the more of a panic I get into! ... eg what will happen to my existing account and monies therein ... does it get transferred to some general Unicaja account somewhere? ... do I have to inform existing direct debit companies that this account no longer exist...
