Crowd sensing systems can open up a vast design space for mobile and wearable applications to monitor, record, and use disaster information in context. This short paper presents a succinct overview of the recent developments of crowd sensing environments in this application domain based on a work-in-progress review of relevant literature and use cases. This leads to the discussions on the ways crowd sensing should complement the existing backbone infrastructures to capture more detailed, relevant and richer data in different contexts.
