Flores, A.B., Collins, T.W., Grineski, S.E., et al.. (2021). Environmental Injustice in the Disaster Cycle: Hurricane Harvey and the Texas Gulf Coast. Environmental Justice. 14(2).
The authors synthesized the literature that examined disparities experienced by Hurricane Harvey survivors based on race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status (SES) across the disaster phases. The authors found that physical and health impacts from the hurricane “disproportionately” affected minority and low SES groups.
