Today Marks the 6th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

People waiting to be evacuated from the Superdome Sept. 3, 2005, take cover after the National Guard reported shots being fired outside the arena, six days after Hurricane Katrina hit the city, devastating the lives of Gulf Coast residents and the United States' image in the world.

The image above of people outside of the Superdome is nothing short of depressing, but it still doesn't completely show the devastation that the people of New Orleans and the coast of Mississippi had to endure when Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast 6 years ago today (August 29, 2005).

St. Bernard Parish has memorials planned today

See how a handful of New Orleans residents are coping 6 years after Hurricane Katrina.
