The findings are organized into the stages of a disaster event. The review explains how people of different socio-economic status observe, get ready for, and respond to natural hazard risks, how low-income inhabitants may be differentially obstructed, both physically and expressively, and how disaster consequences vary by communal category during the different stages of disaster response, recovery, and reconstruction. The results have important implications for communal fairness for future research and policy implementation if offered.
