 New study shows a shocking amount of Americans escaping natural disasters: 'This has huge downstream effects' 

 The US is seeing a worrying number of "climate migrants" fleeing environmental risks from climate change.  

 At least 3.2 million Americans in "climate abandonment areas" were displaced by increased flood hazards between 2000 and 2022,,,

 according to the First Street Foundation.  

 However, infrastructure and job opportunities in high-risk coastal locations like Texas and Florida are driving population expansion.  

 "The downstream implications of this are massive and impact property values, neighborhood composition,,,

 and commercial viability both positively and negatively,,,

 " said First Street Foundation climate implications researcher Jeremy Porter.
