Thank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer!

A Crisis is an unstable condition or point that requires decisive change. It is a decisive moment.

An Emergency is a critical situation that happens unexpectedly. It is urgent and needs action immediately.

A Disaster is a situation that causes widespread destruction, and often times requires outside assistance. Disasters cause great amounts of damage.
