ABSTRACT

Hurricane Georges Assessment: Review of Hurricane Evacuation Studies Utilization and Information Dissemination   [open pdf - 14MB]

"Before Hurricane Georges, a comprehensive hurricane evacuation study had been done for many of the impacted areas. Since Georges directly affected areas where previous study data were available, there was an opportunity to find out whether previous information collected was accurate, how well products were utilized from past studies, and what improvements could still be made. This report addresses information on behavioral characteristics of evacuees, public shelters, evacuation decisions and transportation clearance times."
