FEMA head: 'Stay inside, stay safe' until storm clear

(CNN) - Even though Hurricane Irene has been downgraded to a tropical storm, its powerful winds and drenching rain continue to pose danger to people who venture into it, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Sunday.

People should "stay inside, stay safe," FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate told CNN's "State of the Union" program. "For a lot of folks, the danger still exists. We still will have trees coming down, heavy rain, strong winds."

    Take it serious last year I caught on middle of historic flood that day was my nightmare.
    First I thought just storm so I left home later I realized that was big mistake I made in my life time
