It's important to have enough supplies before disaster strikes, but also enough supplies for the aftermath. Electricity and water could be out for at least three days, so prepare accordingly.

A full tank of gas
Medicine and prescriptions
Batteries, phone chargers, radio
Don't forget to plan for pets and kids as well.
With COVID-19, it's also recommended to have a few extra masks, hand sanitizer, soap, and disinfectant wipes as well.
