In India, natural disasters can cause considerable amount of damage in terms of lives and financial investments. The after effects of disasters in mitigating the effects to repair and rehabilitation can take considerable amount of time as experts visit the site to get a personal assessment. The information flow is language independent and it is possible to communicate with persons on site either in visual or oral manners. In this paper, the role of uncertainties in visual and oral communications provided by the various groups of visitors is addressed. A methodology is proposed in which the statistical nature of the input information relating to damage parameters like location, spread and intensity are translated into engineering inputs that enable the modeling of the problem, which is followed by assessment ,diagnostics and possible rehabilitation measures.
