The information technology has been challenged to be a facility to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of managing the four phases of natural disasters (Preparedness, Mitigation, Response and Recovery phases). Addressing interrelationships between different critical infrastructure sectors during disasters is a complex process. This paper will present multidimensional approach that addresses the issue of Location-Based Infrastructure Interdependency (LBII).
