      Proceedings of the 7th South Pacic Regional IDNDR Dis aster Manage ment Me etin g, September,. [ ] K.J.E.W a l s h,K.L.M c I nn e s,a n dJ.L.M c B r i d e,“ C li m a t ec h a n g e. In the ’s, it was observed that the number of disasters and their impacts were increasing worldwide. This situation alarmed the United Nation Organisation which held various conferences on the issue, leading to the UN declaration of GAD 44/ of declaring the ’s as the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR).

      Pacific Disaster Center assigns severity levels of Warning (most severe), Watch, Advisory, or Information (least severe). The levels represent the potential of an event to be hazardous. Please note these are public safety guidelines, not deterministic predictions. Warning means severe impact or damage is highly likely and anticipated. Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) is an applied science, information and technology center, working to reduce disaster risks and impacts on life, property, and the economies worldwide.. PDC's products and services are used to support sound decision making in disaster response and civil-military humanitarian assistance operations, as well as in disaster risk reduction, mitigation and planning.

Disaster plans save time, money, headaches and, ultimately, they can save lives.
