How Waze evaluates a crisis

Each crisis submission we receive is evaluated using the following benchmarks to help us understand the scale of the event.

  • Number of Waze users in the affected area
  • Planned/existing evacuation routes and Crisis centers
  • Global media coverage of the event
  • Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System (GDACS) lists event in Yellow or Red
  • Event is listed on Google Public Alerts
  • Weather events must fall far outside normal weather behavior or severity
