Short summary
The Lorca earthquake (Spain; 11 May 2011) killed 9 people, injured over 300 and caused huge damage. The vicinity of buildings in the street was the most unsafe area for people. This article proposes a method to study individual evacuation after a seism. Applied to Lorca, it shows the spatio-temporal variability of individual exposure in the street after the shake. The results of this study are helpful to preventive actions in places with moderate seismicity, stressing the danger of the street.
