NOTE: Drinking contaminated water may cause illness. You cannot assume that the water in the hurricane-affected area is safe to drink. The Department of Health recommends one of the following:
1. Boil the water before drinking, holding it at a rolling boil for one minute;
2. Disinfect it by adding 8 drops (about 1/8 teaspoon) of unscented household bleach per gallon of water, and then let it stand for 30 minutes. It the water is cloudy after 30 minutes, repeat the procedure; or
3. Use only bottled water for mixing baby formula.
