Pedestrian evacuation times for businesses on the islands of American Samoa, for 2009 and predicted maximum tsunami (PMT) inundation zones by village, modeled at four travel speeds (slow walk, fast walk, slow run, and fast run)

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

This dataset contains American Samoa nonresidence count estimates as a function of travel time out of the 2009 and probable maximum tsunami (PMT) inundation zones for four different travel speeds (slow walk, fast walk, slow run, and fast run). The data are organized in a manner which permits summarizing or visualizing the data by business classification (church, community center, education, health care center, hotel, industrial, office, recreation, shelter, and store), tsunami-evacuation zone, and/or travel speed, with business details and evacuation zone/travel speed combinations listed across the top as columns and individual rows representing unique businesses' details in the different evacuation zone/travel speed combinations. These data, in tabular format, are intended for use in GIS software applications and other standalone spreadsheet applications. These data support the following publication: Wood, N.J., Jones, J.M., Yamazaki, Y., Cheung, K-F., Brown, J., Jones, J.L., and Abdollahian, N., 2018, Population vulnerability to tsunami hazards informed by previous and projected disasters—a case study of American Samoa: Natural Hazards, 24 p.,
