Emergency Supplies

I want to get ready for an emergency. I am going to buy: 

~Water (not sure how much, but will start with three cases of bottled)

~Canned goods and crackers

~Flashlight (I have the kind you wind and I want another one)

~Candles/Matches

~Transistor Radio 

~Whistle 
 
I cannot think of everything I might need to tie us over for a few days in case of a tornado (knock wood). Please help me come up with a good plan, so I can get my closet stocked. 

Thanks!

I do have a couple of battery operated flashlights, so batteries are good too!  Thanks!

A cell phone charger for your vehicle so if you are able to get out but power is knocked down all over you can still charge phone.

Make sure to have a can opener for those canned goods. Small camping ones are good.
