Katrina Anniversary

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin says his city is struggling, but "performing miracles on a daily basis."

On the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the feeling of loss doesn't seem to have subsided.

New Orleans churches have been staging memorial services, including one at the historic St. Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square, and ringing bells in honor of the victims.

People throughout the city are holding their own private ceremonies to remember where they were when Katrina hit, and what they lost.

Katrina flooded 80 percent of the city and killed more than 1,600 people in Louisiana and Mississippi.

It was the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States.
