Katrina evacuee migration pattern

We already know that Texas and northern Louisiana will receive the largest migration of Katrina evacuees. Houston is almost at capacity. Baton Rouge is projected to be the fastest growing city in the U.S. and has already doubled in size. Other northern Louisiana metropolitan areas are projected to encounter a major population surge. However, there is a widespread migration pattern for Katrina evacuees throughout the Southeast. Outside Texas and Louisiana (Northern Louisiana), Which Southeastern state will you project as receiving the largest in-migration of Katrina evacuees. Not only proximity to Louisiana, but shelter / hotel capacity, opportunity and embracement by the local and state governments, officials and existing population are crucial factors in the number of evacuees a state will receive.

I know in louisville alone they have over 1500 evacuees, there's no telling how many more are in the rest of Kentucky.
I just hope they're stayin in the south.

Louisville has 1,500...2,000 by Monday and then over 3,000 by next wednesday officials from Fema Have told City Goverment. They estimate that over 2,000 people will end up living permenatly in the Louisville area.. though those numbers could change.

Lexington has about 400 right now...

Alabama will probably see the most influx though I would think... b/c of its proximity to all those areas.. like S. Alabama; Louisiana; and Mississippi

It's weird how many cities are receiving evacuees. Indy has around 1,000 and we are pretty far from N.O.

I'm assuming that a good portion will eventually follow the boomerang effect and end up back in New Orleans, Louisiana and Mississippi. After all, for most of them, its still home and all they know.

i have a feeling that a good amount of people will relocate to memphis. it's another big city in the area, and is farther inland than jackson or birmingham.

In Philly, we got already 1000 people, they were originally expecting 4000-5000 people but not too many wanted to go to far from New Orleans.

The DC/Baltimore region has several displaced residents. Not sure of the exact numbers, but I know DC opened its Armory to displaced families and Baltimore opened its DuBurns Soccer Arena. I also read in the Baltimore Sun that both cities are offering public housing to Katrina victims too.

The Baltimore bank I work for is offering special relocation loans to displaced families.
