Hurricane Katrina Migration
Transcript of Hurricane Katrina Migration
migration Push and Pull Factors are specific reasons that attract people to a certain area, or make them want to leave an area. Gravity Model :
A large number of migrants moved to areas relatively close to where their homes were hit, but for the others, they tended to moved to big cities or places with high pull factors. The most important thing about the Hurricane Katrina Migration, is the fact that people migrated to every single state in the U.S. because they needed to escape the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina, and find either family, or a safe place to live at for the time being. Push Factors for the Hurricane
Katrina Migration would be flooding, property
destruction, risk of death or serious injury, zero accessibility to grocery stores and supermarkets, and little if any electricity. Pull Factors would be things like wanting
to help rescue other people, endless job opportunities in clean up and rebuilding,
and later on, very fertile soil. There were several intervening obstacles for many with
just trying to leave their homes. It was nearly impossible
to evacuate cities in Louisiana and Mississippi because the highways were either too crowded or flooded. People from all over happily welcomed the immigrants. In fact, even people from other countries helped these migrants, and helped fund the 108 billion dollars it cost to rebuild the destroyed cities. Technically, there weren't any chain-migrations,
because usually, people traveled with family, but since the evacuation was such a rush, they might not have gone to the most luxurious place possible. Some did migrate toward areas with more pull factors, after they had evacuated. Their weren't any undocumented immigrants or refugees because the migration was primarily internal.
This was the biggest, most spread out migration
America has ever had. *My migration map is the background
for the whole prezi*
The bigger and darker the black circles indicate where more immigrants are at, or were at. Also, all the counties in the states that the immigrants went to, are bold out on the map. By Emilio Ramos Instead of adding one or two pictures to my prezi, I decided to use this next video as a collage of pictures.
