From Merriam-Webster:
Crisis: a difficult or dangerous situation that needs serious attention

From wikipedia: (interesting background read…)
Crisis: any event that is, or is expected to lead to, an unstable and dangerous situation affecting an individual, group, community, or whole society.

Seeger, Sallow, Ulmer* say that crises have defining characteristics: “specific, unexpected and non-routine events or series of events that create high levels of uncertainty and threat or perceived threat to an organization’s high priority goals”

*Seeger, M.W.; Sallow, T.L.; Ulmer, R.R. (1998). “Communication, organization, and crisis”. Communication Yearbook 21: 231-275
