Yang's work suggests Hurricane Maria will prompt increased migration from Puerto Rico to US

a PSC In The News reference

"What the Hurricane Maria migration will do to Puerto Rico — and the US" - VOX. 10/05/2017.

With hurricane Maria's devastation of Puerto Rico, many predict a large exodus - 100,000 to 200,000 Puerto Ricans - to the US mainland in the near future. Because Puerto Ricans are US citizens, they are free to move to and take jobs in the US. This piece looks at reasons to expect this migration stream to increase dramatically, including findings by Dean Yang on hurricane-induced migration, and the ramifications of such a population shift for the US and Puerto Rico.
