NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Mayor Mitch Landrieu says former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will visit New Orleans next week for the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Their visits follow that of President Barack Obama, who is coming to the city Thursday.

On Friday, Bush and Laura Bush will go to Warren Easton Charter School, one of the spots where George Bush marked the hurricane’s first anniversary. They will also go to Gulfport, Mississippi, for an event thanking first responders.

Clinton will visit on Saturday, the anniversary of the hurricane’s landfall. He’ll speak at the city’s main commemoration, the Power of Community gathering.

The White House said earlier that Obama will meet Thursday with residents of several neighborhoods who have rebuilt their lives since the hurricane hit in 2005.
