A SMS-Based Intelligent Disaster Alert System (IDAS) is an expert system in helping geologist to predict disaster incidences. The disaster includes flood, earthquake, hurricane, drought and tsunami. If disaster is predicted, an alert based on possible disaster area will be sent to the residents via mobile device i.e. Short Messaging System (SMS). The system is developed by utilizing Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques of Rule-Based, Decision Tree Analysis and Guided Rules Reduction System. A Microsoft Visual Studio.Net and MySQL database are used as the software development environment while SMS technology is based on Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) connected to IDAS. The case study was done at the area of Melaka Tengah, Melaka. A resident’s information is stored in the database in order to send alert via SMS. Once disaster is predicted, SMS will be sent to their respective mobile phone.
