Objective: The natural disasters (example: Queensland Flood in 2010‐2011 and Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Crisis in Japan 2011, Typhoon Haiyan in 2013) a huge number of notices showed up on different social media. This proposes individuals’ dependence on online networking on occasion of disaster has expanded colossally at that time. Notwithstanding, the best worry to emergency services with regards to reaping data from clients of online networking is the nature of the got information. Methods/Analysis:At present it is exceedingly hazardous to separate between data that has a high level of disaster significance and that data which has a low level of disaster pertinence. What’s more, this is not just an impairment, it represents a critical test that if determined can mean the distinction between life‐saving choices and life‐wasting choices. This task investigations natural disaster related discussion in Twitter that happens amid the dynamic conditions of an unfurling disaster. Findings: The primary commitment is in the production of another coding classification that emergency services and analysts in emergency correspondences can utilize when breaking down substance identifying with natural disasters. The second commitment is the system that joins novel elements utilizing well‐established algorithms to recognize disaster applicable discussions from online networking streams. Improvement: These Techniques for expanding out subjective consideration to vast scale quantitative research in the zone of online networking and Twitter research is the third assurance of this analysis.
