Natural Disasters Warnings: Alerts for Seniors and Disabled

  • Synopsis: Last Revised/Updated: 2018-06-07 - Warnings and alerts for earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and natural disaster advisories for seniors and people with disability.


With seemingly increasing frequency of natural disasters occurring around the world today Disabled World has added an advisory section for seniors, persons with disabilities, and the mobility impaired.

A natural disaster is the effect of a natural hazard (e.g., flood, tornado, hurricane, volcanic eruption, earthquake, or landslide) that affects the environment, and leads to financial, environmental and/or human losses. The resulting loss depends on the capacity of the population to support or resist the disaster, and their resilience.

For people with disabilities, barrier free, as well as, barrier-ridden environments become a great deal more hostile and difficult to deal with during and after an emergency.

People need to plan for emergency evacuation in anticipated and unanticipated situations including chemical, biological, radiological, explosion, transportation accidents, fire, floods, earthquakes, mud slides, hurricanes, tornadoes, snow storms power outages, etc.
