Hurricane Earl is on his way! There are many things you can do to prepare for Hurricane Earl's appearance. Here are a list of necessities.
Food for Hurricane Earl
When preparing for a hurricane, supply several cans of canned fruit and canned meat such as tuna that can be eaten straight from the can. Also stock up pre-cooked canned meat. Protein is definitely helpful in times like these, the meat fills you up for a much longer time than most anything else. But the packaged fruit will give you that boost of every that you may need.
In addition to the meat giving you full belly, the starches in bagged or canned chips can fill your hunger when you are in complete darkness. Even packing cereal bars, nuts, peanut butter and various bag of trail mixes are great for just small snacking every once in a while.
Water for Hurricane Earl
You can never have enough water. We have to use water in almost everything that we do. When you are getting everything ready for Hurricane Earl and you think you have enough water to last you however long you will be stuck, then double the amount. According to AssociatedContent.com one gallon of water a day is a fairly good amount that will get you prepared for Earl.
One gallon a day does not include the water that you will need to flush the toilet or wash up. Store up on water ahead of time in the sink, washing machine, various buckets, and your bathtub. Keep in mind that when Earl comes and the weather gets bad, the power will go out and so will hygiene plans like a toilet that needs water. If this happens then put a gallon of water in a freezer without a lid a long while before Earl comes near.
