Ceremonies are being held in Mississippi and Louisiana today to mark the 10th anniversary of the day when Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf coast.

In New Orleans, city and congressional leaders laid wreaths at a memorial holding the unclaimed and unidentified bodies of hurricane victims.

Churches along coastal Mississippi tolled their bells in unison this morning.

Other events are planned to honor those who died, thank those who came to rebuild and celebrate how far the region has come since the hurricane struck.
