Having safe drinking water should be at the top of the list for your Hurricane Supplies. Best practices recommend having a three-day supply of water on hand with a gallon of water per person per day. This works out to three gallons of water for each person to use for drinking and cleaning.
Avoid purchasing single-use plastics like disposable bottled water and fill up gallon-sized water jugs with filtered tap water. Pitchers, thermoses, large water bottles, and even cooking pots can be used as alternatives.
Wash all the containers thoroughly in hot water. Wait until the day the weather event begins then fill up your containers, cover them tightly, and use sparingly as needed. The water should easily last for three days.
