Residents of coastal Mississippi will hold events in remembrance of Hurricane Katrina, the massive storm that struck on Aug. 29, 2005.
The observances began Thursday on the Biloxi Town Green on U.S. Highway 90 followed by the opening of the Ground Zero Museum in Waveland.
The city of Pass Christian was holding a memorial service.
The University of Southern Mississippi held a service at the Katrina Research Center on its campus in Long Beach.
Katrina smashed into coastal Mississippi with a force that destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses and blew casinos from their moorings. Damage in Mississippi was reported as far inland as areas north of Jackson.
At least 175 people died in Mississippi, a low number that officials say resulted from coastal residents heeding storm warnings and evacuating.
