Research Title: Economic Effects of Hurricane Evacuation: Florence 2018

Research Synopsis: Hurricane Florence made landfall in September 2018 on the eastern coast of the United States was estimated by NOAA to have caused twenty-four billion dollars in damages. Virginia was a state estimated to suffer significant damages but received little to no impact. This study examines the economic consequences of the mandatory evacuation notice given to these areas to add to the total dollar amount of damages. This study investigates numerous factors that effected the economy during this period. This research provides guidance to the impact of proper weather forecasting in aid to decrease false evacuations and avoid economic detriments, or to add to past hurricane economic damage totals.
