People who live in Hurricane and Earthquake areas should have emergency kits. We did for years living in So. Cali while stationed there. #1-water, a gallon a day for each person for at least 3 days (we alwas had it for 5), Changes of clothjes for everyones. Wool blankets are excellent sources to use for shelters and warmth. Even if it is wet it will still help keep you warm. We had meals for three days that required no water. Our campstove was always stored with emergency supplies. In CA we kept it in the very left front vcorner of our home so in case of collapse it could be reached. wind up laterns and flashlights, an ax, a wrench large enough to turn off water and or natural gas mains. No less than 6 rolls of TP and a seperate box of cheap garbage bags for emergency latrine if needed. We also had a radio in our. It could run on batteries or the hand crank. Also in a water proof bag, matches, phone humbers of all family.
