We received tons of great tips from viewers for how to get water when the stores run out.

Lots of folks are suggesting you fill up every container you have with water from your house now so you won’t need to go hunting for plastic water bottles.

Also, a good tip we saw is to bag up the ice your refrigerator is making right now and if the power goes out the bags will slowly melt leaving you with cold water.

And if you have a water heater.. it is usually filled with clean water and most are able to drain it out slowly for you to collect.

Bathtubs are also made to hold water so, clean it well and fill up your tub for easy access to gallons of water.

These are just a few tips we’ve seen but we would love to hear more from you on Facebook to keep our neighbors from getting parched.WHAT’S TRENDING ONLINE NOW –
