With continued food and water shortages in Japan due to the earthquake, tsunami, and radiation leaks, we are reminded once again of the need for emergency food and water storage. My first typhoon taught me that after a disaster, the store shelves will be bare. He who waits until AFTER the disaster to stock up on food and water will compete with the whole world in a panic.
The simple reality is...If you are hit by disaster and do not have a family STORAGE of food and water, you will experience a family SHORTAGE of food and water. No amount of money will buy you what simply is not available due to lack of supply or inability to deliver to your neighborhood.
So now is a good time to reconsider if you have an adequate supply of food and water to last you for at least 3 days and ideally for much longer. Adjust what you store to the amount of space you have and to your budget. Most of us can easily store at least three days of water (a gallon of water per person per day as encouraged by FEMA) and food.
It is a choice... STORAGE or SHORTAGE. You will decide by your action or inaction BEFORE a disaster, but not AFTER.
