I hope this is hyperbole?

If these comments are hyperbole, they’re in very poor taste. If they’re not, this could be a very sad week. Here’s Ray Nagin, Mayor of New Orleans, whose memory of three years ago is surely still very clear:

“You need to be scared,” Nagin said of the Category 4 hurricane tearing along Cuba’s western coast. “You need to be concerned, and you need to get your butts moving out of New Orleans right now. This is the storm of the century.”

“This storm is so powerful and growing more powerful every day,” Nagin said. “I’m not sure we’ve seen anything like this.”
