The smart city is how citizens are shaping the city by using technology, and how citizens are enabled to do so by getting the support of city’s government. Diverse data are collected on a regular basis by satellites, wireless and remote sensors, national meteorological and geological departments, NGOs, and various other international, government, and private bodies, before, during, and after the disaster. Data analytics can leverage such data deposit and produce insights which can then be transformed into enhanced services. Disasters are sudden and calamitous events that can cause severe and pervasive negative impacts on society and huge human losses. It causes enormous evil impact on society. The proposed system is based on disaster management scenario for avoiding negative impacts on society and huge human losses. The system is providing an alert to people leaving in particular area as well as in nearby area. The system is based on the activities on social media during disaster. This system tries to help society by using the information revealed by them only by collecting the data or messages spread by the people suffering from the disaster or the people who have an idea about its occurrence. It will help people to save themselves as well as possibly other living and non-living things that come in society. The system will send the alert message to a particular area or the people who come under that particular area so that people can save their lives as well as their time and other things depending on the types of disaster occur.
