WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will mark the fifth
anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans on Aug. 29.
The White House says Obama will speak at Xavier University.
Other administration officials who have worked on Katrina recovery
efforts will also be in the region to mark the anniversary.
Obama made his first trip to New Orleans since taking office in
October, holding a town hall with local residents. He returned to
the city again this year to assess efforts to stop the Gulf of
Mexico oil spill.
