Disaster Advice for the Single Urbanite
Take $1,000 to $3,000 out of the bank. Stash it someplace safe.
Buy even more water. Store in a closet or under a bed.
Think where you might go if you had to get out of the city, even if it was by foot. Discuss that plan with friends and family. Do it by text, if you must.
