Ray Nagin's advice for those affected by Hurricane Irene

Posted By on Fri, Aug 26, 2011 at 11:59 AM

Former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin appeared on the CBS Early Show this morning to offer pearls of wisdom for those freaking out about the approach of Hurricane Irene:

"It's very concerning, because this storm has a larger footprint than Hurricane Katrina and, in my book that I self-published through CreateSpace, I talked about what we did to prepare for it, the evacuation," he said. "Most people don't know, we got about 95 percent to 96 percent of the people who were in the city out of harm's way before the storm hit, so there's many lessons to be learned from our experience."
