Katrina Memorials

St. Bernard Parish President Craig P. Taffaro Jr. reads his opening remarks before he and city council members took turns reading the names of the victims killed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina August 29, 2005 at the rededication ceremony of an updated monument at Shell Beach Saturday October 11, 2008. The event was originally scheduled for the third anniversary but was delayed due preparations for Hurricane Gustav.

Other Katrina Memorials along the Gulf Coast:
