This weekend marks 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

Posted: Updated:

This weekend marks a decade since Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana.

According to a new report, homelessness is still a concern in New Orleans.

A recent count found roughly 1,700 people in the area remain homeless. However, a nonprofit in New Orleans says there's been an 85 percent decline in  homelessness since 2007, when it was at its peak following Katrina. 

President Obama plans to visit New Orleans to mark the anniversary. While there, Obama will meet with the Mayor of New Orleans along with people still rebuilding their communities.
