9. Why?
These people lost their homes.

Some had relatives in other areas of the country. Some decided to try their luck in a different place. Especially among the poor, there's not a lot to keep them in NOLA. They no longer have jobs and most of the economically disadvantaged rent rather than own. Why is it surprising that they'd pull up stakes (actually, the stakes were already pulled) and move to different parts of the country?
