On August 29, 2011 I appeared live on Americas Radio News Network to discuss the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. I come on for a few minutes around the 1 hour 20 minute mark. My main point was to show that people were too fixated on the wind speed mph number when all along it was the flooding rains that were likely to cause the most damage. The northeast dodged a bullet but it was still a very costly storm that could have been much deadlier.
