There are all kinds of things you should purchase to help you be prepared for a disaster – flashlights and batteries, bottled water, and food that doesn’t need to be cooked for a start. You might want tarps to cover damaged sections of your home, if it comes to that. Consider purchasing a portable external battery for your cell phone.
The recommendation is that you have a minimum of 3 days of food and water for you, your family members and your pets. Most websites recommend a gallon of water per day per person or pet.

Remember, be prepared; stay safe.
