1. All downspouts leading to cisterns be disconnected or blocked.
2. A two week supply of water to be used for drinking, cooking and bathing stored in a safe waterproof place. To calculate the water needed for two weeks, use the formula: multiply the number of residents by 20 gallons per person per day and multiply that number by 14 days.
