Abstract. In mitigating and helping lessen the possible effects and damages of disaster to the communities, the transmission of information or end products derived from remote sensing and other multidisciplinary technologies into the community should be immediate, accessible and comprehensive to aid in better planning and decision-making procedures. In this paper, we share a hazard information dissemination procedure which integrates the use of outputs derived from numerical models, web applications and systems as well as the use of social media and telecommunications to promote the utilization of advanced science and technology outputs that could represent and visualize various flooding scenarios through social media and dynamic communication between stakeholders.
