Things to send to your loved ones after disaster

Updated 16sep18

Power outages, fires, floods, earthquakes, wind, and storms can interrupt utilities, phones, stores, ATMs, and travel. These things occur when we are least prepared.
Sometimes our loved ones are involved, and they may not even know what they need. This list of suggestions is a good starting point. You can send things with next day delivery. Note that some types of disasters will delay delivery.
