Information gaps between authorities and citizens on how to prepare for a disaster
There is a stronger relationship between respondents feeling informed, or not informed, by the authorities on what to do, and feeling personally prepared for a disaster in their area. Almost three out of five participants expressed their feelings of not being prepared or not being prepared at all, whereas less than one out of ten (8.4%) feel prepared or well prepared.
