Max Mayfield of Katrina fame (well, he tried, but the ptb had a plan, which I call the New Orleans Plan) has weighed in on Irene:
[T]he former chief of the National Hurricane Center called it one of his three worst possible situations.
“One of my greatest nightmares was having a major hurricane go up the whole northeast coast,” Max Mayfield said.
He said the damage would probably climb into the billions of dollars: “This is going to have an impact on the United States economy.” . . . .
