Maine Hurricane Evacuation Studies

Although the Maine coast is not normally regarded as having a hurricane threat, historical records indicate otherwise. Even in recent history Hurricanes Bob and Agnes have visited their suite of hazards of Maine, both on the coast and inland, inflicting a significant amount of hardship anddamage on the people and property of the State. For that reason, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has undertaken this effort to prepare a study to analyze the possible impacts of various hurricane hazards on the State, as well as determine the amount of response time necessary to ensure all populations are out of the threatened areas before the effects of any hurricane arrive.
