Was it really better to not evacuate for Hurricane Harvey due to the chaos that creates?

I know the Houston mayor stated that past evacuations have not worked well for Houston but could there have been a smaller voluntary evacuation order that would have helped?  I’m only really looking for experts who have some expertise in this area of massive evacuations and disasters with fact based information.  I do believe its very very hard to evacuate a huge city like Houston and some people do not have the money to evacuate anyway.

Not evaculating was the risk many took and actually wasnt wise to do because the storm killed many who chose not to leave and to stay behind. Those who didnt have the means to leave had the option of going to a shelter to escape the dangerous winds and flooding that Hurricane Harvey had brought to the area. If I were you I would research on Google as to dealing with massive evacuations and disasters.
