      Beyond improving preparedness and raising public awareness about risk and crises, social media in disaster risk management can be used as. As surveillance, monitoring, situation awareness and early warning system tool through the technical approaches of crowd sourcing and data mining or by relying on volunteers trained to support media monitoring for humanitarian response.   This was the year of natural disasters, from deadly earthquakes to record breaking floods and California wildfires still burning today.

      Disaster prevention and preparedness is a newly designed course for health science students. The aim of the course is to equip students with knowledge and skills of developing feasible disaster prevention plans and preparedness before a disaster happens to minimize the risks and the resulting Size: KB. Early warning systems include detection, analysis, prediction, and then warning dissemination followed by response decision-making and implementation. Such systems are in place, in many parts of the world, to monitor, forecast, and warn people about e.g. tropical cyclones, floods, storms, tsunami, avalanches, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms.

      Lucy Pearson looks at early warning systems for disasters, their uses and limits, and what accounts for the gap between warning and action.. Through history disasters have destroyed lives and livelihoods, killing people and damaging homes and businesses. Disasters in the past 35 years have taken an estimated million lives and cost more than US$ billion, mainly in developing countries. Natural disasters inflict severe damage on almost the entire spectrum of social and natural habitats, ranging from housing and shelter, water, food, health, sanitation, and waste management to.
