Here is an interactive map:
http://dma.jrc.it/map/?application=GDACS&bbox=-172.5:-30.8:-152.5:-10.8

Here is the KML layer :
http://www.gdacs.org/xml/install_gdacs.kml
which is a reference to :
http://www.gdacs.org/map/kml.asp

can be converted to osm :
gpsbabel -i kml -f kml.asp  -o osm -F pat.osm

And the file looks like this:
