Natural Disasters API

Access disasters and many more events using PredictHQ’s API

Natural Disasters & Much More, All in One Place

Multiple data streams in just one API

Natural disasters have major immediate and ongoing impact on businesses. Sales can soar or plummet, while supply chains and consumer interest can be severely impacted too. And if you don't have a comprehensive source of verified and standardized data on natural disasters to inform your demand forecasting models, they can not account for this unusual impact and this will cause significant forecasting errors that can and should be avoided.

Always stay informed about natural disasters that could impact your business by accessing PredictHQ’s demand intelligence API. PredictHQ collects, aggregates and maintains thousands of unique pieces of global scheduled and unscheduled event data into one handy API. We don’t just tell you what events like natural disasters are happening when and where, though. We analyze how important they are and how they could affect your bottom line, giving you the power to make important business decisions almost instantly when the need arises.

Ranked Disasters

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

Finding out what natural disasters are happening where is one thing, but figuring out which ones your business needs to pay careful attention to is another. Use PredictHQ’s RESTful API to source event data about natural disasters happening all over the world, like earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes and floods, not to mention millions of other national and global events, then make founded business decisions like when to pause certain campaigns - or when to turn them off altogether. Our event ranking technology assigns a numerical rank to every single event, so you can filter from major to minor events and see at a glance what disasters your business needs to pay special attention to. Store your own copy of events, so you can use them for data modeling and analysis, or enriching your own dataset to produce and sell derivative works.

We take the guesswork out of important business decisions by giving you access to highly specialized demand intelligence that lets you create your own applications, data models and algorithms. Our API communicates with any platform, and our intelligent weighted algorithm associates event attributes and variables to every piece of information we store to help determine how important they are.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

Because disasters need to be handled carefully

At first glance, an earthquake in China or tsunami in Thailand might not mean much to your business if you’re based in LA. But what if you’re targeting marketing campaigns to the people who have just lost their homes? Not only could you lose money, you could also be perceived as being insensitive.

Staying informed about global natural disasters and other major events doesn’t mean you have to tune into CNN 24/7 though. PredictHQ pulls multiple data streams and third party APIs across more than 18 event categories (and counting) into one smart information source so all the events you can imagine are easily accessible. It effectively becomes your very own tsunami API, or earthquake API, or any other kind of disaster API, really. Our data processing pipeline does all the hard work for you so you can spend more time building integrations, data models, algorithms and forecasting tools that will help you make the best business decisions quickly and help you put your budget into the most effective areas. Lookup events and get JSON responses. Integrate our data with any platform - and to make integrations even easier PredictHQ currently has Python and JavaScript SDKs available. We use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication, and access tokens are required to grant application access to the tools available on the API. Developers won’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources. Plus, our API is versioned for easier maintenance. You can even search for events using airport IATA codes, search within a geographical radius, or query multiple locations and categories at the same time - all essential if you run an international company that needs to know what’s happening everywhere all at the same time.

You can’t prepare for what you don’t see coming
