Fire, your house burning down, happens all the time adn if you're even there you have only seconds before it burns down on you.
Natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, also hurricane, tornado, tsunami. Wildfires. Any of these could force you to evacuate.
Industrial disasters, chemical spills.
Sociopolitical and economic degradation. A neighborhood, state or entire country becoming too dangerous or too poor for you to stay in it.
Politicial, idiological, ethnic and religious persecution.
War, both foreign invasion or civil war.
Bugging out isnt a choice as an alternative to bugging out. Bugging out is what you do when staying isnt an option any more.
