It is best to put two disaster kits together: one for your car in case a disaster strikes while you are away from the house, and another (supplementary) for the house.
Pack your supplies in a backpack for your car-pack and pack your supplies in a bucket for the house.
Pack a sleeping bag with plastic ground cloths and tent for shelter, and pack some money for both kits. For the house kit, pack additional food and water and know what important items you want to take with you if you need to evacuate.

If you have room, consider adding something to heat water to your pack for hot beverages or instant add-water only foods (oatmeal, pasta, rice, etc). If you live in an area prone to disasters that cause extended power outages seriously consider keeping a portable generator on hand.
The kit for the road should include enough supplies for 2-3 days, and the kit for the house should include enough supplies for 5-7 days.
Water can be contaminated, so you need to store enough water for drinking, and additional water for cooking (if you have a camp stove), flushing a commode, and washing.

If you're in a tornado-threatened area, and on a higher level if you are concerned about flooding or earthquakes, and you can reasonably plan on surviving on site, put your kit in an upper level closet.
