3 Ideas To Help Survive a Hurricane or Other Natural Disaster

Here are three great ideas I have never seen to help survive a disaster like Hurricane Irma.

If you can not find bottles of water, and you still have city water...fill some zip lock bags with potable water for drinking water. You can also fill your bathtub for washing and flushing water.

Your dishwasher is waterproof (or the water would leak out when you wash dishes). That makes it the safest place to put valuable papers to keep dry in a flood or when worried about hurricane roof damage and water leaks

If you need a place to keep food and drinks cold, put ice in your washing machine. The water from ice will not leak across the floor and it is a closed container for storage 

Follow the direction of emergency management professionals. The life you save may be your own or someone in your family. Another thought worth considering is that it is not fair to ask emergency rescue professionals to risk their lives to save you if you take stupid chances.
