No one likes to think about it, but disaster can strike at any time. People in areas prone to hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes and other natural disasters know this all too well. If the worst were to happen and your city needed to evacuate, would it be ready?
PT&C|LWG recently determined how the 10 most populated urban metro areas would fare in an evacuation. They took into account a wide range of factors: exit capacity, internal traffic, roadway intensity (number of lanes per thousand people), auto availability, bottlenecks, congestion, geographic barriers (oceans, lakes, mountains), public transit, land area, and density (population per square mile).
