What would it be like to spend time in a Red Cross shelter, after a flood, earthquake, or blizzard?

Some people found out Thursday. The Red Cross set up a mock shelter at Saint Raphael's Episcopal Church in Lexington. And at the shelter, the Red Cross urged people to prepare in advance for a disaster.

The Red Cross urges everyone to have an emergency plan, so that everyone in the family knows what to do in the event of an emergency. Families are also urged to have an emergency kit, with a three-day supply of water, non-perishable food, a flashlight, battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra batteries, a first aid kit, medicine, an all-purpose tool, sanitation and hygiene items, and copies of personal documents.

The Red Cross has tips and apps that can help you prepare at its website.
