Social media's popularity has been changed the way in which companies and individuals interact with each other and share some applications, images, videos and services. These micro blogging services have enabled customers to provide their positive, negative and/or noncommittal sentiment and opinion about any topic from entertainment to significant weather events. In this paper, the authors build a framework that merges the twitter, natural disaster and aviation communities. They considered 4 U.S.-based severe weather events that included tornadoes, hurricane and massive snowstorm (called a nor'easter), 6 large and medium sized airlines and 3 weather stations.
