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.


People disproportionately die in cars from floods, so evacuation is not as straightforward a call as seems.


Hey, it is a great opinion! If you do not have a proper support in writing essays, then you need to ask it at writing service. I highly recommend it from my own cooperation with payforessay writing company for a long time.

Evacuating a city like Houston is not easy, because of the amount of population, in the mass media and social networks, facebook video download about what happened in that hurricane and I think that when there is chaos the population looks for their means to survive, it is very complicated a massive appraisal


 I think the Mayor of Houston also anticipate the people and he relied on the report of the weather. The people of Houston they think that they are more felt safer when they stay in their houses and stress free. While the Mayor presumed the weather report which is can’t cause more tragic to the people even in nature and their daily living.


It was better indeed.
