Are You Really Homeless if a Hurricane Destroys Your House?

When a once-in-a-decade act of God descends on our country’s coastline, commercial and residential properties are inevitably damaged or destroyed by the angry wind and rain.

Super-storms bearing names like Katrina and Sandy wreak havoc on the lives of people who live in their paths. Katrina ruined 1.2 million homes in the South, and Sandy destroyed 380,000 homes in the East.

When the wind died down and the wreckage was assessed, many families and individuals were deemed homeless.

Do I dare ask if these people were really homeless?
