Because I live in the South, it is time for me to think about the upcoming Hurricane Season. But there are other disasters that parts of this country should be worried about: Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Floods, etc.
Here are some things that you should gather up and have handy in case of an emergency.
Batteries-all sizes (for flashlights, radios)
Water-at least 1 gallon per person per day for 3 to 7 days
Food: Non-perishable packaged or canned food / juices – Enough for at least 3-7 days
