Some disaster recovery supplies for a flood are a three-day supply of bottled water and non-perishable food, a flashlight, a battery-operated or crank-powered radio, a first aid kit, and a multi-purpose tool. These items should be packed together for travel in case there is an evacuation.
Copies of important personal documents, rain gear, personal hygiene items and extra clothing for everyone in the family are also useful items for disaster recovery. A map of the area is also helpful for finding high ground in the area and locating evacuation centers. Pet supplies, baby supplies and at least seven days worth of medication and medical supplies are recommended for families with pets, babies or family members with medical conditions.
