Résumé / Abstract

The present study investigated long-term psychological effects of Cyclone Bola, which struck the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island in March, 1988. Using mailed self-report questionnaires, data was collected from 118 individuals who had been evacuated from their homes during Cyclone Bola, and or who applied for financial aid following the disaster. The study found that, five years after the cyclone, 12% of respondents could be classified as post-traumatic stress disorder cases and 17% were classified with high psychological distress scores. The relationship between these psychological out-comes and various risk factors was examined. High post-traumatic stress disorder and psychological distress scores were significantly related to higher mean levels of emotional distress at the time of the disaster, and to greater dissatisfaction with both post-disaster assistance and social support.
