Transcript of Hurricane Katrina Migration (2005)

Internal or International Migration?
This is Internal Migration, the people of New Orleans moved to different areas but stayed in the United States. They moved to cities like Houston, Atlanta, Little Rock and Memphis. Almost all migrants went to either Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and Northern Louisiana.
Voluntary or Forced Migration?
This is forced migration. The hurricane destroyed houses and flooded streets and made areas affected uninhabitable which forced residents to leave the area.
This is interregional. The migrants went to other parts of the country and did not stay in the New Orleans region. Most migrants went to other states and some went to Northern Louisiana.

Main Push and Pull Factors
The main push factor is the the environment. The hurricane destroyed the city and made it hard to live in so people were forced to leave to find better living conditions. The pull factors would be the other cities were in good condition and they provided better living conditions than New Orleans.
Interregional or Intraregional?
Who is Migrating?

Most of the migrants were males and females from 25-70 years old. Most of them did not have kids.

How the migration follows the gravity model
This follows the gravity model because most people migrate short distances and to all areas. The people went to areas close to where they are migrating from.
The most important thing about the
Hurricane Katrina Migration
is that the city of New Orleans was destroyed and 1,836 people were killed, and thousands more were left without homes.

Some people found new jobs in their temporary locations and decided to stay which would be a intervening opportunity. Some of them are considered refuges, if their house was completely destroyed and they could not survive in their normal location. When the immigrants migrated some would follow family member who migrated before they did.
Attitude toward immigrants
In certain areas people were taken in by the natives of the area and were helped while others were thought of as a hassle and the natives did not want to deal with them.
