Take it from me - a survivor of Hurricane Katrina - you missed the emergency checklist from the CDC. This is in case of a major power outage, hurricane, earthquake, tornado or other disaster:
Water—one gallon per person, per day
Food—nonperishable, easy-to-prepare items
Battery powered or hand crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)
Extra batteries
First aid kit
Medications (7-day supply), other medical supplies, and medical paperwork (e.g., medication list and pertinent medical information)
Multipurpose tool (e.g., Swiss army knife)
Sanitation and personal hygiene items
Copies of personal documents (e.g., proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, and insurance policies)
Cell phone with chargers
Family and emergency contact information
Extra cash
Emergency blanket
Map(s) of the area
Extra set of car keys and house keys
Manual can opener
