13. If you're planning for a predictable disaster, you don't need long-term storage

I've you're concerned about a hurricane or other predictable disaster, you don't actually have to store the water - just get the containers and leave them empty. Fill them before the storm arrives. This obviously prevents leaks, plus it's easier on the container.

Obviously, this doesn't work with unpredictable disasters, which is why water heaters are so protected in California - around 30 gallons stored at every house.
