Monday at 11pm: The Five Minute Warning

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It could be a flood, a hurricane, a tornado or any other type of natural disaster that puts you in a position to have first responders at your door telling you it is time to leave your home.

Perhaps your home won't even be there, at least not in it's current state, when you get back.

What would you take with you if you only had five minutes to get out?

The American Red Cross helped Consumer Reporter Kristen Miranda put one Charlotte-area family to the test.

What would they bring?  What important items did they forget?  What is the lesson we all can learn from their Five Minute Warning?

That story airs on WBTV, Monday, July 8th, at 11pm.
