1. INTRODUCTION Disasters are defined as sudden events that bring disruption to a society with human, material, economic and environmental losses or impacts that exceed the ability of the affected community to cope up with by using their own resources (UN/ISDR, 2009). Considering the fact that disasters do not have to be always a sudden event but can develop over a time period EM-DAT (2009) defines disasters as a situation or an event that overwhelms the capacity of the affected community which seek national or international assistant. Implementation of appropriate disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures is an important element in disaster management. Lack of DRR measures could lead to significant loss and damage to human and materials and could hamper economic wealth of the society.
