Dozens Attend Katrina Memorial Service

New Orleans Braces For Flooding From Harvey's Storm System, Amid Problems With City's Pumps

Enough time has passed for one to have started kindergarten and graduated from high school, but the 2005 hurricane named Katrina is still fresh in the minds of most New Orleanians. Times-Picayune reports dozens of them gathered yesterday alongside the cement wall constructed in the Lower 9th Ward after the storm to hold back the waters flowing through the Industrial Canal.

The memorial service came 12 years after the failure of the levee there then left many dead when hundreds of homes were flooded and destroyed.

The service was delayed for several days due to the threat from Tropical Storm Harvey.
