A traditional second line parade makes it's way along Tennessee Street in remembrance of Hurricane Katrina on the fifth anniversary of the historical hurricane, in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans, Louisiana, August 29, 2010. Five years ago today water from broken levees flooded approximately 80 percent of the city. Today residents sing and pray and dance where once they were surrounded by raging flood water.
