Hurricane Katrina Memorial Service planned at Ground Zero Museum

In remembrance of the 14th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the Ground Zero Hurricane Museum in Waveland will be hosting a memorial service.

The museum features multiple exhibits displaying the effects that the storm had on the City of Waveland.

The visuals at the museum are not a memorial to a disaster, but a tribute to the strength and resilience of those affected.

Following the services, the museum will be offering free tours of their exhibits, including a new exhibit featuring Waveland residents who get to tell their story.  Museum Director Linda Aiavolasiti said, “It is part of our history. It’s something that people need to remember and hopefully learn by.  We lost 26 people here in Waveland. We don’t want them to be forgotten.”

The memorial is set to begin at 10 a.m. at the Ground Zero Hurricane Museum. The museum and exhibit stay open until 3 p.m.
