. ‘We’re defeated’: Climate migrants fleeing storm-stricken Central America struggle to find refuge « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NBC – Last year, amid the pandemic, Central Americans endured the formation of 30 cyclones that devastated entire regions and fueled the need to emigrate.

About 34 people emigrate every hour from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, according to a report published in February by the Franciscan Network for Migrants.

The countries are plagued by violence, poverty and political instability, but the new faces of this exodus are “climate migrants” who leave after being left homeless, jobless and without crops.
