Description:This image depicts a blue-colored sign consisting of two segments, a rectangle topped by a circle. The rectangular component indicates an arrow that points in the direction one need take when attempting to evacuate the region, and the circular component is displaying the universally-understood hurricane symbol, and the words, “Evacuation Route”.
In the event of a natural disaster inhabited regions are often equipped with evacuation routes, thereby, enabling inhabitants a more efficient method of removing themselves from an endangered region, and into a safer, better-protected environment, which normally would include an evacuation shelter.
