What is the basis for the Red Cross recommendation to store supplies to last several days to a week?
Red Cross recommendations to have food, water, and other emergency supplies on hand are not new, and are considered reasonable in case of any disaster. Our recommendations are to have supplies to last at least three days to a week. Most reasonable people would not consider such quantities of supplies as a "stockpile" or "hoarding." We understand that there are some other groups or organizations that are suggesting storing larger quantities of supplies for various reasons. We will stick with our recommendations, because experience with hundreds of disasters over many, many years has indicated that the vast majority of people in the U.S. can get to one of our shelters for caring comfort or receive other assistance in a matter of a few days after even the most severe event.
Of course, if you'd really just rather stay home.......
