Flooding, but we're not in a Floodplain, so...
Everyone keeps what is called defensible space

Thanks. I remember that fire, now that you mention it

I'm not sure what you mean by relative.

I'm familiar with defensible space. My dad has had to remove a lot of the vegetation around his home for that reason.

We sort of have Tornado Alley here along the river. It's a crapshoot. We've also had some straightline winds that have done some pretty good damage, lost many a tree.

Thinking. Packets of tuna. Zataran anything. Smoked clams or oysters. Powdered milk. We get a shelf-stable box of milk in Mexico that keeps for several years. Jerky. Canned beans.

I have TidyCat litter buckets (washed out) for all my survival gear, They are compact, same size and stack nicely. Clothing, first aid, utensils, canned foods, packet foods, cat food...each has it's own bucket. Charcoal grill with extra briquets and wood for cooking, a couple of 8 quart stock pots with lids (filled with flour, salt, pepper, coconut oil, chili powder, granulated garlic}. Any extra buckets I get now will be filled with potable water.

We are subject to: tornadoes, blizzards, fire, high winds and earthquakes. Plus the ever present possibility that Yellowstone will blow, it's more than a 100 years overdue.

But, when we did think about the SHTF: water, TP, batteries, propane for the grill and of course our states' most popular food item, SPAM!!! actually any dry good or canned food will do... and don't forget the pets too!
We got hit a few times and had to dip into our reserves, which I rotated.
Oh, and more than one can opener is a good idea, seeing as we lost one during Hurricane Iwa, that was one heck of a Thanksgiving, boy. But all of the neighbors checked in on each other, made sure that everyone was okay with whatever they needed and SHARED!!

When I empty a bottle of bleach, I immediately fill it with water. I have 20-25 stored under the utility sink in the laundry room. Even if they are old and stale, I could still used them for flushing or bathing.

I live in Sweden, nothing really happens here and when it does it storm, seldom hurricanes and sometimes fires. And the military service is out with 24 hour, helping everyone and well where I live, not even during the worst storm in 100 year, we had food or electric problems after 24 hours.

I do have blankets, know where to go if heating goes and there is hand operated pump for safe water near by.
