Gallery: How to Prepare for Hurricane Sandy


Again, on any normal day we'd never tell you to hoard, but under these special circumstances, we think it makes sense to stock up on food and supplies. Non-perishables like canned soup are preferable for obvious reasons - we recommend the ones with the pull-tab tops in the unlikely, but still horribly frustrating event that something happens to your can opener. As a green website, we still have to push for a Brita or other water filter as a first resort before bottled, but we definitely encourage you to start purifying tap water and saving it in containers right now. You should also make sure you have: batteries, a first aid kit, a whistle, iodine tablets, personal hygiene items, a phone that does not rely on electricity, and child care supplies. Check out more details on how to prepare an emergency preparedness kit here.
