Extreme Weather - Being Prepared

With all of this extreme weather we have been having, I though this would be a great time to share what I have in my emergency kit. 

Flashlights
Bottles of water, I fill up gallon milk jugs
whistle, so rescuers can hear you
crackers, or some type of food that will store well
blankets
clean socks and a pair of shoes for every member of the family
a clean change of clothing for every member of the family
first aid kit
battery powered radio
and something that most people don't think of, bicycle helmets.  What better way to protect your head. 

I use my food storage room in the basement as a tornado shelter.  There is nothing heavy (bathtub, washer, etc.) above it, and it is a small, windowless room.  If you have pets, don't forget storing some food and water for them too.
