Driving Safely to See the Solar Eclipse


People from across the country will be driving to the area of totality to see Monday’s solar eclipse. The Red Cross wants to make sure those driving are prepared with extra supplies.

It recommends three days worth of snacks and water. Take about a gallon of water per day. Things like a flashlight, multi-purpose tool and hand-crank radio should be in an emergency kit. Drivers will need a full tank of gas, so there’s no chance of getting stuck without it. A car phone charger, and some extra cash could also come in handy.

The Red Cross’ full list of safety tips can be found here.
