Toelichting (Engels) The possibilities open to preventive evacuation depend on the time available and the time required for evacuation. If the time available for evacuation is less than the time required, complete preventive evacuation of an area is not possible. This can occur if the threatening flood is difficult to predict or if the area that has to be evacuated has few access roads and the evacuation requires a considerable amount of time. To determine the influence of preventive evacuation, it is necessary to estimate the time available and required for evacuation including the uncertainties involved. This paper focuses on these issues, especially on the time available for evacuation. Because there are almost no observations on the time available, we have had to rely on expert judgement. In addition, the results of this study provide a basis for further discussion. The results give an administrator insight in the time available and required for evacuation of his dike-ring area
