It was at this time last year that residents along the Gulf Coast were preparing for what would become the nation's worst natural disaster. Now, the hurricane-ravaged areas are again in the national spotlight as they commemorate the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
Several memorial services are planned for both today and tomorrow, and Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco will be in attendance at several of those. Blanco told KPLC that although New Orleans is down, it is not out, and will once again become a thriving city.
