Short-Term Climate Refugees
“How are people temporarily displaces from their homes because of climate change?”
Climate change is making environmental disasters larger and stronger than ever before. Whether it be the fires raging in Northern California or the Hurricanes blasting Puerto Rico, things are definitely not what they used to be. This can cause locations to be temporarily uninhabitable, and only after infrastructure reaches a certain level of repair can these Short-Term Climate Refugees return to their home. An example of this can be found in Hurricane Katrina, where numerous families from New Orleans had to spend extended time outside of the city before returning.
