ABSTRACT

Estimated Shelter Needs: Hurricane Ivan   [open pdf - 946KB]

This map provided by HAZUS-MH (Hazards U.S. - Multi Hazard), illustrates how Hurricane Ivan effected numerous households which then required alternative shelter needs. It also describes how HAZUS-MH can be used in pre-disaster preparation: Estimation of shelter requirements from scenario events for mass care planning, and incorporation of user-supplied data on designated shelters into the HAZUS-MH inventory. In a post-disaster situation, it can be used for analysis of area of impact, estimation of the number of displaced households and short-term shelter requirements - one day prior to landfall and at landfall, and use of estimates to scale mission requirements under mass care.
