#DisasterPreparedness Tip(55 gallonWaterStorage): There are always people/companies on Craigslist selling used 55 gallon barrels from $10 - 30 bux. Just make sure they are food grade, meaning they were not used for storing motor oil or dangerous liquids previously. Just go on Craigslist and pick your city, and in search type in 55 gallon water barrel/or drum. (foodgrade)
You can also do a google search for used 55 gallon water drums in your city.
Also check with your local pop/soda bottling plants. they use these for storing the syrup. Some places I have heard give them away while others charge $10. Since more and more people are starting to buy them they are selling more. These soda/pop plants usually have to pay a company to haul them away. Get as many as you can, clean them out good with bleach water, and fill them up.
We not only need water for drinking, but we need water for cooking, cleaning, etc. If we can find some 55 gallon barrels and fill them with water now, we will have that extra water when that day comes where our water supply is cut off.
And Remember, if you fill up TWO 55 gallon water containers, that is enough water, for one person, for THREE MONTHS.
If you find some in your area will you please let me know so I can inform others in your area where to find them? Thank you

#DisasterPreparedness WHEN you get these 55 gallon barrels, be sure to put them exactly where you will store them BEFORE you fill them with water.
These things will weigh more than 450lbs after you fill them with water making it very hard to move.
Put it where you are going to store it, then fill it with a hose or something.
And do not fill it all the way to the top.
Leave a little room, just in case you go through a FREEZE, the water will have room to expand without cracking the barrel open.
Also Remember to NEVER store our water directly on the concrete.
There are deadly chemicals in the concrete that will leech through plastic and contaminate our water.
Always put some kind of barrier between the cement and your plastic water container.
If we get two of these for every member of our family, we will have three months of water for every member of our home.
And Remember to get a pump to get the water out.

#DisasterPreparedness Here are Five 55 gallon barrels that I got used off Craigslist and filled with water.
I just went on Craigslist and in search entered 55 gallon water barrels.
There were a few companies that had them.
The guy I got these from sold them for $20 each I believe. He charged $35 to deliver. So I ordered 7 (2 for my brother) and a steel barrel (for burning trash after disaster)
To keep them off the cement I put a piece of plywood underneath.
Two of these is THREE MONTHS worth of water for one person.
Even though it's only me I have 5.
And I plan to get more just in case someone comes to me in need.

#Earthquake#DisasterPreparedness(Water Storage: Are we saving used detergent containers?): As we are done with our Bleach we should save those containers and fill them with water.
This water will come in handy for us after a Disaster.
We can do the same with our LIQUID Laundry detergent containers.
Refill them with water. After a Disaster we can use the water in those detergent containers for cleaning only.
The water will have some of the soap in it making it good for cleaning.
As we stock up on water, at least 10 cases per person is a great thing.
But after Disaster, if the only water we have stored is our cases of water, we will have to use that water to clean our homes, flush toilets, etc.
But if we refill our used Bleach/Detergent containers, we can use that water for cleaning. We can store a lot of water this way and it doesn't cost so much.
Does that make sense?
Dear Believers, #DisasterPreparedness: Evacuation, Angels & Lucky Ones: Brother Jabril warns "MOST OF US are not going to see that God has really come until this country has been brought low;
Until the white man has lost his power.
THEN, MOST of us will SEE.
The LUCKY ONES will see spiritually PRIOR(meaning BEFORE) to that.
And THOSE are the ones who SHALL BE HIDDEN in the days of God’s WRATH.
Which will break out not long after Minister Farrakhan departs, and that’s VERY SOON.” Brother Jabril Muhammad : Betrayal and it's Antidote
#Christ explains our evacuation in the Time of trouble "You have been looking for spirits to come out of the sky.
It will not be like that.
The angels will come from Heaven, alright enough, but they are MEN and not spooks like you think.
They will come in planes to take you up out of the troubled area and fly you to another peaceful area out in the far Pacific.
The Bible prophesies to you that you will be taken to the ISLANDS far away." Honorable #ElijahMuhammad Theology of Time
#Christ teaches "The #Bible prophecies to you(Blacks) that you will be taken to the islands FAR AWAY.
They do have places out there where they can take care of us permanently (forever). You May live on some of these islands.
#NewZealand has already cried out that they can take ALL of us." Honorable Elijah Muhammad : Theology of Time
Mother Tynnetta teaches "Such persons called #Angels or messengers would be SEEN in the Final Judgment Hour standing on every other corner telling the people where to go.
He(#Christ) also stated that there are THOUSANDS of those individuals (angels or messengers) ALREADY in the country (America), but could not be identified lest they be killed.
We must have FAITH and REMEMBER that we are NOT ALONE.
Many of us may be lucky to be RESCUED when the time comes and be TAKEN to quiet, peaceful places OUTSIDE of the area designated for destruction." Mother Tynnetta Muhammad : The Time of the Witnesses and their Testimony
Mother Tynnetta teaches on the work of the angels : "This number 19 is a code and Signature of God that specifically identifies the work of his angels in carrying out His Command.
