Store a three to seven-day supply of one gallon of drinking water per person, per day. Additional water may be necessary for those with special needs such as infants, children, seniors, ill family members, and pets.
Storing water before a tropical storm or hurricane is important because of the possibility of contamination. When electricity is lost, the ability of the water treatment plants to keep adequate pressure and storage volume in the lines may be affected.
If water pressure is low or service has been interrupted, flush toilets as little as possible and discontinue all unnecessary outside water use.
