Hurricane Emergency Kit


Hurricane Emergency Kit, originally uploaded by A!ison.

I have been told that even though Orlando is too far inland to receive an actual hurricane, we will however feel the effects of one and run the risk of having no water or electricity for a few days.

I've also been told that in the event of a hurricane warning, people panic (understandably) and wipe out entire store's water and canned goods inventory.

The Greek's wife said one year, her parent's home was the only house in the neighborhood to still have a roof. They live near Disney World.

The hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30 with the peak being early to mid September. Although Hurricane Wilma hit late October, Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Andrew hit at the peak.

So today I bought all the water we need in case of a hurricane warning. I also bought supplies for a hurricane emergency kit, very similar to a earthquake kit. The only question I have is, where do you store your water and kit?
