UPDATE: Obama not visiting MS for Katrina anniversary

UPDATE: According to a White House release, President Obama will not visit Mississippi to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Obama plans an Aug. 27 visit to New Orleans to commemorate the storm, which made landfall in Mississippi on Aug. 29, 2005, destroying Waveland, Bay St. Louis and much of the Mississippi Coast and causing poorly maintained levees in New Orleans to break and flood the city.
