Hurricane Flooding

Bottled Water Shortage and High Gulf Temps Raise Risks

The southern U.S. region is warmer earlier this year thanks to warmer than normal temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico.  Historically, recent past included, early warmer temperatures contributed to increased spring tornadoes and more severe hurricanes in the Gulf regions.  Bottled water could remain in short supply.

Warm water temperatures increase the atmospheric temperatures and moisture content.  These two conditions promote conditions for more frequent and severe tornadoes inland and stronger hurricanes in the coastal regions. The spring/summer storm season is just around the corner, and the U.S. annual hurricane season starts on June 1.

Will you be ready?  Will you be able to prepare properly?

Summer Storms and Coronavirus

Currently, the U.S. will enter the annual storm season while still living under the challenges of the coronavirus.  During the preparation for anticipated “social distancing” directives, store were stripped of items critical for everyday use and of those critical during a disaster event.  Toilet paper, disinfectants, antibacterial products and bottled water are, at best, in limited supply across the country.  And if available, stores limit purchase quantities.

Delayed Preparation Comes With Risks

Regarding the coronavirus, we don’t know what the future holds.  We all certainly hope the virus threat dramatically lessens with warmer weather, but they really don’t know.  Should the virus persist into the storm season, social distancing may still be the policy due to continuing health risks.

If the virus remain virulent during the warm season, and storm/hurricane preparation becomes necessary, will there be needed water supplies, and will you be risking your health to find and buy?

Our Penchant For Bottled Water

Our “go to” approach to emergency water is bottled water. But, the current shortages make emergency water in bottled form difficult to get and if you can find it, you’ll likely be limited in the quantities you can buy.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a 30 day supply of potable water during the coronavirus event.  That’s 120-gallons of bottled water for a family of 4 just for basic consumption. CDC further recommends replacing bottled water within 6 months.  Water bottles break down, depositing plastic particulates into the water after that.

The bottled water approach also contributes enormous amounts of waste in landfills that is not biodegradable.

Consider a Permanently-Installed Emergency Water System

Now, and perhaps when you need it most, bottled water may not be available.  And those at greatest risk, rural, low income, elderly and medically challenged will have an even harder time preparing for a major storm event.

Rather than worry if you’ll have a supply of emergency water, and an environmentally responsible approach to emergency water, a permanently-installed whole house system ensures you always have a know supply of potable water available. 

Constant Water systems are installed so the tanks are always full and water always refreshed—no repurchasing new bottled water supplies.  Engineered to prevent external contamination during operation, you WILL have emergency water when you need it.
