Water is in Short Supply in an Emergency

When weather hits, it's time to buckle down and be prepared. Preparing last minute doesn't give you a lot of options. For those who have ever been in a hurricane, you know what I'm talking about!

When I was a kid I lived in Florida for 6 years and Puerto Rico for 2. The rest of my life up till I was 18 I lived in NJ. So hurricanes and tropical storms was a way of life.
I remember my parents taping the sliding glass door, collecting flashlights and moving things up off the floor in the basement. 
But one of the things that stuck with me the most was going to the grocery store and seeing empty shelves; especially in the drink section. Hurricane residents buy up anything liquid; soda pop, juice and water are all gone!
It is important to store at least 1-2 gallons per person per day. That amount of water would strictly be for drinking. If you wanted water to wash with and to cook and flush toilets you'd need to store about 6-7 per person. 

But how can you store this much water?
