By Kathy Finn and Edward McAllister NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - From the Lower Ninth Ward to the Super Dome, New Orleans launched a day of events on Saturday to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, paying tribute to its victims and homage to the city's resilience in the face of disaster. The day began with a somber ceremony led by Mayor Mitch Landrieu to remember the 83 "forgotten" victims whose unclaimed bodies now rest in mausoleums at the Hurricane Katrina Memorial, housed in one of the city's historic above-ground cemeteries. Katrina killed more than 1,500 people, mostly in flooding that left 80 percent of New Orleans under water.

Flanagan, 41, a former WDBJ reporter fired in February 2013, fatally shot himself a few hours later after police caught up with his rented get-away car on a highway that leads into the city of Washington.
