The Barbados Water Authority advises that before a storm, storing an adequate supply of potable water for yourself, your family, and your pets is important.

The recommended amount is five (5) gallons per person per day for at least five (5) days.  Water should be stored in clean, covered containers.

Remember that in addition to storing water, it is always useful to have disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer accessible to help keep you and your surroundings sanitary.

The Authority urges everyone always to be prepared and stay safe during this hurricane season.
