Introduced you to the following disaster information.

1) General info is the first website to check.

1. EM-DAT
http://www.emdat.be/
2. DesInventar

Concerning, data on demographic, socioeconomic, and others, we should
clarify the levels from national to local.
County Level
1. UN data
http://data.un.org/
2. World Bank open data
http://data.worldbank.org/
3. CIA world factbook
https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/

Provincial (States) Level
1. Government Office (National Statistics Office,etc.)
Community Level
1. Local Government Office

When I investigate the disasters, I first go to the ADRC (if the country is Asia) and Relief Web to see some significant numbers such as the death toll and affected numbers. Then, check the disaster history of the target areas by EM-DAT and Desinventar (if the country is listed). I also overview the county’s background by CIA world factbook and check some socio-economic data by UN or World bank open data. Besides, the local government or community data of the target area are significant to be accessed. These are the first action to grasp the whole picture of the disaster.
