Abstract

Each summer the population of the barrier-island communities of New Jersey increases by tens of thousands. When a hurricane threatens these communities, the few bridges and causeways that connect the islands with the mainland become overcrowded, making evacuations from the barrier islands to the mainland difficult. Timely evacuation depends on well defined emergency evacuation plans used in conjunction with accurate flood forecasting and up to the minute (real-time) tide-level information.
