President Barack Obama will travel to New Orleans on August 29 for the fifth anniversary of the day Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast.  The visit will include remarks by the President at Xavier University of Louisiana.  Members of the President’s Cabinet who have worked to speed recovery and restoration efforts will also be in the region to mark the anniversary.

It will mark the first time that Obama has visited New Orleans for a Katrina anniversary.

Obama did visit the city after the anniversary in 2009 and has made a number of visits  to the area since the BP oil spill.
