Storms around the world

A tropical storm has flooded one of India's biggest cities, killing at least 10 people.

And flooding & landslides in Brazil have killed 84 people so far. One of the major issues in the affected areas of Brazil is lack of drinking water. How much have you got squirrelled away?

You need at least 3 litres per person per day, just for surviving. More if you plan on washing your hands etc. The latest statistics on our water usage in the Wellington region shows that we use 400 litres per day! That's not so much usage as wastage... You should probably thinking about storing more than the minimum .
