Members how are you storing large amounts of water, protecting it?

Please post here how you are storing water and how you are protecting it from several different
possible events.

High wind, fireballs, earth movement, mudslides... etc.

I would store such a water container in concrete. Like a concrete area in a bunker or dome.

I have a 100 gallon plastic tube that fits in a bathtub, filling it. It is called "The Reservoir".  Bought online.

I'm sort of a lamer.  Am only storing in 1-gallon glass jugs, and yeah I know they're very breakable.  The plan is to insulate each one with cushioning on all sides, and bottom.

There are ways to cushion things to cushion objects such as plastic jugs and glass jars.
Years ago I posted some ideas but the idea is, paper, cardboard etc. and I would store under concrete... What I would like to do is also have large scale water storage...
The main thing is, you are storing...
