ABSTRACT

Hurricane Evacuation Behavioral Assumptions for Massachusetts   [open pdf - 324KB]

"This document is accompanied by a lengthier report titled Hurricane Evacuation Behavior in the Middle Atlantic and Northeast States, referred to hereafter as the 'Main Report'. That volume provides background information relevant to understanding the following discussion. In particular the Main Report describes methodology and data which form the basis for many of the recommendations included in this volume. On occasion this report will make reference to 'MR-Fig. x', meaning a particular figure in the Main Report. Sample survey results for Wareham are reported in this document, but the reader should be aware that they are included as 'tests' of the general response model's applicability to Wareham rather than to provide actual figures for evacuation planning. Even for Wareham response in future hurricanes could be considerably different than .that observed in Gloria."
