Date Issued:

Summary:
Over time, since Hurricane Andrew in 1992, people have become more responsible regarding animal safety during hurricane season. But the catalyst seemed to occur between the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Without collecting the oral histories of people who lived through these events, it would have been harder to notice that turning point, because most scholarship has focused on the human aspects of evacuation behavior. Once we knew where to find information regarding the animals, we could deepen the research and discover the changes that were made, and why.
