Remenber Katrina how about Irma or Harvey. This Open Ranked List is of things or supplies you might need after a hurricane you dont want to get stuck in the Superdome unless you have to. Just imagine being on an island that gets completely wiped out no electricity no cell phones. You would of course need water and food those are necessities you cannot live without. Then there are plenty of other things that might make your wait for relief tolerable. Check out our list vote for the item you think is most important and it will move to the top of the list. Add any item you think we left off or forgot, or maybe its just something you couldnt live without like your Ba Ba, whatever that is! Here it is internettop40.com Survival Checklist.
Electric Power Generator not necessarily the first thing to consider but something you could use anytime the power goes out, a gas powered elctric generator. If your really into it you could connect it to the main electric panel of your dwelling and have power to most or all of your outlets in the house. (consult an electrician for something like this)
Another of life's essentials W-A-T-E-R! you canlive without food for days, but water you need that every day! So a big water dispenser would be nice, with a few extra water jugs. Make sure the dispenser is gravity fed. A less expensive idea is to fill the sinks and tubs or a bunch of old milk jugs with the life giving substance. Depending on where you live it could be days or weeks before you could get fresh water.
Dont forget at night with no electricity you would need light. Consider getting a solar powered flashlight, (I highly recommend a headlight, a light that attaches to your head so your hands are free) charge it in the day use it up at night. You might want several of these or get some that take regular batteries, they can last for years if stored properly. (Always double check your batteries before you need them and store extra batteries in a seperate space) Another idea is the option of butane or gas powered lanterns or lights, get several with an extra cans of the gas, those items come with their own safety concerns.
Why you would need aid now more than any other time is because if you cant get to a hospital or emergency center, the likely hood of a cut or something getting infected is elevated because of the water. The water is more likely to have germs and other nasty things in it because of sewage back up and other things. And you would certainly want to stop any bleeding before it got bad. Needless to say if your really into it, (surviving that is) store up on antibiotics and pain killers, you never know when you might be able to get to a real hospital next. So a good first aid kit is the last thing you want to have to use but as they say the first thing you'll be glad you have!
A boat is not something everybody has lying about the house, but an inflatable bed might be. If that tidal surge or flood gets too high you may need something like a boat. An inflatable bed is the nextbest thing. Inflate it before the power goes or make sure you have a manual air pump. Maybe the kids have some old pool or bath toys that will float. The main thing is that it floats, and you can rest on it if need be.
