Dehydration is no joke and certainly possible during a disaster. Honestly, I’m surprised more people don’t have serious trouble from dehydration during emergency situations. Even when times are normal dehydration is easy wind up with. Just recently, in fact, my kid got rather sick for a night and started to show signs of dehydration. We started him off immediately with an oral rehydration solution. To make it more palatable, however, we ended up giving him some Recharge sports drinks. IMO, it’s never too early to start rehydration therapy if a person in losing fluids faster than they’re going in… know the symptoms!
