On Sunday, Ray Nagin commented on Amtrak's claim that they could have evacuated several hundred people just before the storm hit. From this:
"I don't know where that's coming from," [Ray Nagin] told NBC's "Meet the Press." "Amtrak never contacted me to make that offer. As a matter of fact, we checked the Amtrak lines for availability, and every available train was booked, as far as the report that I got, through September. So I'd like to see that report."
