    New Orleans Seeks Cuban Advice on Storms


    New Orleans, Louisiana, Mayor Ray Nagin arrived in Cuba late Friday on a mission to learn about how to deal with storms, a spokeswoman said.

    "We understand we may have a lot to learn from the Cubans in terms of disaster preparedness and how they have dealt with hurricanes," spokeswoman Ceeon Quiett said.

    Cuba is internationally applauded for exceptional disaster management, according to a news release from Nagin's office.

    (Hey, whatever works. Always good to see Nagin actually working.)
