Newly arriving refugees are among the most vulnerable of populations during a disaster in the United States due to language barriers and a lack of exposure to U.S. practices around emergencies. Depending on what region of the world the refugees came from, they may not know about some types of natural disasters, such as tornadoes. This booklet introduces refugees to the types of disasters that occur in the United States as well as what to do during them and how to be prepared.
