Abstract: Disaster forecasting is the most challenging problem in all over the world because it consists of multidimensional and nonlinear data. Mostly, weather change causes much trouble in disaster forecasting. This research is based on four data mining algorithms namely Neural Network (NN), Support Vector Machine (SVM), Linear Regression and Decision Tree (DT). Generally these algorithms are used for the forecasting purposes. In this research, historical data on weather for past 10 years has been used covering all the districts in Sri Lanka. The major natural disasters recorded in the history such as floods, droughts, landslides and cyclones are obviously influenced by the extreme weather conditions. These weather conditions which can be measured by the parameters such as rainfall, temperature, humidity and wind are predicted and based on such predictions, main disasters are forecasted with 60% accuracy level in this research.
