Summary Some applications, including disaster monitoring and recovery networks, use low-powerwide-area networks (LPWAN). LPWAN sensors capture data bits and transmit them to public carriernetworks (e.g., cellular networks) via dedicated gateways. One of the challenges encountered indisaster management scenarios revolves around the carry/forward sensed data and geographicallocation information dissemination to the disaster relief operatives (disaster relief agency; DRA) toidentify, characterise, and prioritise the affected areas. There are network topology options to reachits destination, including cellular, circuit switched, and peer-to-peer networks. In the context ofnatural disaster prediction, it is vital to access geographical location data as well as the timestamp.This paper proposes the usage of Pseudo A Number (PAN), that is, the calling party address, which isused by every network to include the location information instead of the actual calling party addressof the gateway in LPWAN. This PAN information can be further analysed by the DRA to identify theaffected areas and predict the complications of the disaster impacts in addition to the past historyof damages. This paper aims to propose a solution that can predict disaster proceedings basedon propagation and the velocity of impact using vector calculation of the location data and thetimestamp, which are transmitted by sensors through the PAN of the gateway in LPWAN.
