How to prepare for disaster without going all Doomsday Preppers

I think it's not too tin-foil-hatty to say that we're getting more extreme weather because of climate change. Let's say you're city dwelling DINKs with a cat and you want to kit out one of those under bed storage boxes
with supplies (food? candles? batteries? whiskey? tiny cat hard hat? I really have no idea) in case of extreme weather. What would you include?

I had a casual read through the Red Cross preparedness guide
but the specifics leave me a bit confused - what's a two week supply of food when it's at home? What kind of 'sanitation supplies' are reasonable? I'm really interested in how to put together a Sensible Disaster Box without going either broke or nuts.
