Ray Nagin “Katrina’s Secrets: Storms After The Storm” Book
Remember that bald guy who was mayor of New Orleans who was always on television it seems describing the damage?
Well his name is Ray Nagin, and he carried the city through one of the worst natural disasters to hit the US when Hurricane Katrina slammed ashore.
The hurricane was powerful and had it not been for the levees breaking the city might have withstood the winds and rain, however when the levees broke, flooding of a massive nature occurred causing unprecedented damage.
Now Nagin has written his own book an in it he describes some scary moments before, during, and after when the storm hit.
Nagin’s book is called, “Katrina’s Secrets: Storms After The Storm” and gives his look at what happened and is reportedly something that others have no way of comprehending except from an inside view.
Imagine the worst storm in history heading your way and then having to deal with hard headed residents who don’t want to evacuate, government officials who are too incompetent to respond and there you are in the middle where everyone is going to blame you no matter what.
That’s what Nagin was up against and when the worst case scenario happened it was like something out of an old Irwin Allen disaster movie like “Towering Inferno” and “The Poseidon Adventure” where undercutting costs and arrogance brought people to their dooms.
So now we have his side of the story and it should be interesting.
