With the increasing number of hurricanes in the last decade, efficient and timely evacuation remains a significant concern. Households’ decisions to evacuate/stay and selection of departure time are complex phenomena. This study identifies the different factors that influence the decision making process, and if a household decides to evacuate, what affects the timing of the execution of that decision. While developing a random parameters binary logit model of the evacuate/stay decision, several… 
Departure Timing Preference during Extreme Weather Events: Evidence from Hurricane Evacuation Behavior
Hurricane evacuation has become an increasingly complicated activity in the U.S. as it involves moving many people who live along the Atlantic coast and Gulf coast within a very limited time. A good
Towards modelling of evacuation behavior and planning for emergency logistics due to the Philippine Taal Volcanic eruption in 2020
Emergency evacuation is the immediate escape of people away from a place of an imminent threat to a place of safety. The ability of the households to evacuate is a crucial component in reducing

Modeling and Analysis of Optimal Strategies for Leveraging Ride-Sourcing Services in Hurricane Evacuation
This research proposes mathematical modeling and analysis strategies that can help balance demand and supply through a pricing mechanism designed for ride-sourcing services in evacuation, and suggests a subsidy is considered in the model such that lower-income and vulnerable individuals could benefit from ride-Sourcing services.


Behavioral Model to Understand Household-Level Hurricane Evacuation Decision Making
Hurricanes are one of the most costly natural disasters in the United States and have increased in frequency in the last few years. The critical role of evacuation, particularly for the vulnerable
Sequential Logit Dynamic Travel Demand Model for Hurricane Evacuation
A sequential binary logit model is developed to model the probability that the members of a household will evacuate at each time period before hurricane landfall as a function of the household's socioeconomic characteristics, the characteristics of the hurricane, and policy decisions made by authorities as the storm approaches.
The logistics of household hurricane evacuation
Although there is a substantial amount of research on households’ hurricane evacuation decision making, there is much less research on the logistical issues involved in implementing those
An Empirical Evaluation of the Determinants of Household Hurricane Evacuation Choice
In this study, we implement a set of probit models to analyze the determinants of household hurricane evacuation choice for a sample of 1,355 households in Florida. This article contributes to the
Heading for higher ground: factors affecting real and hypothetical hurricane evacuation behavior
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to assess the determinants of hurricane evacuation behavior of North Carolina coastal households during Hurricane Bonnie and a future hypothetical hurricane. We
Modeling Hurricane Evacuation Decisions with Ethnographic Methods
This paper directly models individual and household hurricane evacuation behavior using ethnographic decision tree analysis. This approach uses a set of iterative processes to inductively derive a
Comparison of Time-Dependent Sequential Logit and Nested Logit for Modeling Hurricane Evacuation Demand
Models that predict hurricane evacuation demand can play a crucial role in developing and evaluating alternative evacuation policies and plans. However, to evaluate alternative policies effectively,
Analysis of Urban Travel Times: Hazard-Based Approach to Random Parameters
The determinants of travel time to destination for an urban area are studied while unobserved heterogeneity is explicitly accounted for with hazard-based duration models with random parameters.
Household Decision Making and Evacuation in Response to Hurricane Lili
This study collected data on the evacuation from Hurricane Lili to answer questions about households' reliance on information sources, the factors affecting their decisions to evacuate, the timing of
