Short summary
Today, when extreme weather affects an urban area, huge numbers of digital data are spontaneously produced by the population on the Web. These digital trails can provide insight into the relation between climate-related risks and the social perception of these risks. The experiments presented in this paper show that big data exploration techniques can amplify debated issues and actors and explore how social media users behave.
