Discover mobility trends observed during catastrophic events
During natural disasters, such as hurricanes and wildfires, it is critical to understand the rate at which residents are evacuating impacted areas and where they are going. Spectus’ Evacuation Rate dashboards report the percentage of residents who have evacuated their homes by county, in addition to the average distance traveled by evacuees, and the destination counties traveled to by evacuees who left their home county.
Furthermore, Spectus analyzes evacuation rates by income group in order to provide insights into the impact of natural disasters on various income segments. By providing these insights, Spectus’ aim is to support emergency managers and public planners to better prepare for and respond to natural disasters.
