With the increase in frequency of disasters and crisis situations like floods, earthquake and hurricanes, the requirement to handle the situation efficiently through disaster response and humanitarian relief has increased. Disasters are mostly unpredictable in nature with respect to their impact on people and property. Moreover, the dynamic and varied nature of disasters makes it difficult to predict their impact accurately for advanced preparation of responses [104]. It is also notable that the economical loss due to natural disasters has increased in recent years, and it, along with the pure humanitarian need, is one of the reasons to research innovative approaches to the mitigation and management of disaster operations efficiently [1].
