    probably spend more time playing on my aquarium boards..., and reading, and getting to the gym... ah hell, I'd just have more time for everything. I'm on here way too much.

    Min, haven't you asked this question like 6 times already? Repetition for Emphasis?

    One can never be too careful so here's a good way to make sure you prepare for such a disaster..

    Disaster Supply Kit

    Following are a number of supplies you may need if your family is confined at home during an emergency. Adjust according to your needs.

    There are six basics you should stock for your home: water, food, first aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools and emergency supplies, and special items. Keep the items that you would most likely need during an evacuation in easy-to-carry containers. Suggested items are marked with an asterisk(*).

    Possible containers include a large, covered trash container, a camping backpack, or a duffel bag.

    Store your supplies in a convenient place known to all family members. Keep a smaller version in the trunk of your car.

    Keep items in airtight plastic bags. Change your stored water supply regularly so it stays fresh. Replace your stored food regularly as well. Rethink your kit and family needs at least once a year. Replace batteries, update clothes, etc.


    Store water in sealed, unbreakable containers. Avoid containers that will decompose or break. Store one gallon of water per person per day. Identify the storage date and replace every six months.


    Store nonperishable food according to your needs. Select foods that require no refrigeration, little preparation or cooking, and little or no water. Select food items that are compact and lightweight.
  • Include a selection of ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits, and vegetables.
