Sunday marks the fifth anniversary since the devastating Hurricane Katrina roared across the United States killing more than 1,800 people, destroying everything in its path.
On Saturday, about 100 people gathered at a church in Louisiana for a memorial service. In New Orleans, rain-drenched flowers were placed at a memorial site in the devastated Lower Ninth Ward.
Ironically, many other memorial events were cancelled because of a torrential, unrelenting rainstorm. US President Barack Obama will deliver a speech at Xavier University on Sunday, while New Orleans Mayor, Mitch Landrieu will lead a memorial event in the historical Jackson Square.
