How much water should I store?

Experts are now recommending a two week supply of food and water for households and businesses in Washington State. A variety of sources (Red Cross, FEMA, Emergency

Management, etc.) recommend one gallon per person per day in your household, for a two week supply of water. That does not include water for pets, hygiene, or cleaning.

system is damaged. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had information about you and your family can do in these situations.
