Abstract

Mitchell Scovell used psychological theories to explain how and why people differ in their levels of cyclone preparedness. It was found that psychological factors are relatively strong predictors of a range of cyclone mitigation behaviours. The findings have implications for improving existing theories and cyclone related messaging.
