A disaster in dreams is any negative event that tests our beliefs and finer feelings. We do need to remember that the heightened sensations take us into areas within our psyche where we have perhaps not ventured before.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Disasters such as crashing aeroplanes, falling buildings or other such images are presented to highlight extreme emotions such as fear, anger and anxiety.
Material aspects: Many disasters in dreams echo difficulties in everyday life, pictured in such a way that they allow us to work through the problems.
