Vulnérabilité face aux crues rapides et mobilités des population en temps de crise

Abstract : This paper presents the main issues and developments of a research conducted in spring 2003 on the basis of post evaluation of the 8th-9th September 2002 catastrophic flood event. In the purpose of a qualitative approach of behaviours expressed during the crisis period, we performed several interviews of inhabitants in three flooded communes of the Gard department. Based on the importance of casualties linked to motor vehicles usage during flash flood noted in the literature, we worked on the hypothesis of a correlation between crisis period displacements and usual spatial practices. This study allowed distinguishing various types of behaviours in front of the flood progression. It contributes to the
knowledge of the main behavioural factors in the aim of preventive planning and crisis management.
