In the last few years, the occurrences of natural disasters have been continuing changing the people lives, damaging property and life styles in many different ways. In this paper, the authors present a system that can be used to prevent enormous damage from natural disasters. In this system, a wireless sensor network based on Zigbee/IEEE802.15.4 standard is utilized as a weather station network sending weather information and disasters' alerts. The weather information is analyzed by using decision tree techniques to announce the disasters' alerts.
