EXAMPLE: Earthquake, Anchorage, Alaska, March 27, 1964. The damaged downtown area was cordoned off, and property owners and businessmen clamored for access to their residences and stores. A "disaster control group" had been organized and began to issue passes to individuals with legitimate reason to enter the area.
