Abstract Assume a set of distributed nodes which are equipped with a sensor device. When nodes sense an event, they want to know (the size of) the connected component consisting of nodes which have also sensed the event, in order to raise–if necessary–a disaster alarm. This paper presents distributed algorithms for this problem. Concretely, our algorithms aim at minimizing both the response time as well as the message complexity.
