In the case of a hurricane, local emergency management and Red Cross officials nationwide remain committed to upholding COVID-19 and social distancing practices in shelters. Below are additional precautions we recommend the general public observe if required to evacuate to a shelter.
During and after a hurricane, you may need supplies to keep your family safe and healthy. Remember that a hurricane could cut off your power and water supply. You also may not be able to drive because of damage to your car. Roads may be flooded or blocked.
Nonperishable and ready-to-eat food, including specialty foods—such as nutrition drinks and ready-to-feed formula—for infants, people with dietary restrictions, food allergies and sensitivities, and medical conditions such as diabetes.
Store at least 1 gallon of water per day for each person and each pet. You should consider storing more water than this for hot climates, for pregnant women, and for persons who are sick.
Store at least a 3-day supply of water for each person and each pet. Try to store a 2-week supply, if possible.
Observe the expiration date for store-bought water. Replace non-store-bought water every 6 months.
Store a bottle of unscented liquid household chlorine bleach (label should say it contains between 5-6% of sodium hypochlorite) to disinfect your water, if necessary, and to use for general cleaning and sanitizing.
