Moving around at night, without light is in itself dangerous. Especially in a disaster area. Trip hazards, getting lost, flood waters, being mistaken for looters etc.

So to do it there would have to be a greater threat during daylight hours to make it a worthwhile risk.

Real life examples are probably limited to warzones where the risk of being seen and shot are greater than the physical risks of walking around in the dark.

Even with the threat of increased criminal activity places like New Orleans post Katrina were probably safer to move around during the day than at night due to the overwhelming damage to the urban environment.
