Stock Up

Gather and check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed. The American Red Cross suggests you pick up at least three days’ worth of water and non-perishable food, a flashlight and extra batteries for it, at least seven days worth of prescription medication, a cell phone with a charger, and that you have extra cash and spare clothes at the ready.
