Map of Katrina Evacuees

This is a very interesting map that I happened across in USA Today. It shows how Katrina Evacuees have been dispersed across the US, and into all 50 states. Here's the caption, click on the link to head to the map.

USA Today reports 1.3 million people have left the Gulf Coast and are now located in all 50 states. FEMA applications were filed from 18,700 ZIP codes in all 50 states...nearly half of the nation's residential postal zones. While many remained within 250 miles of home, "the dispersion shows this is one well-networked country." Some of the flight could be permanent, as it was in the Great Flood of 1927, and thereby change the complexion of the entire region.
