Just try to keep this in mind whenever you go off wondering what just you will need in certain situations like this.
First chill, it will do NO GOOD to go off in your imagination, you must stay in your own head at all times.
Just remember this
It takes weeks to die of starvation, days to die of dehydration, and only hours to die to the elements.
Then it still only takes a split second to die of an accident.
Take from this these ideas.
This is a time for you to take a look around, a BoB isn't going to save you anymore than what you put in it, and all in all a BoB is really your own
You will need food, yes, water, yes, light, its helpful, fire, easier to come by nowadays then most think, a flint set solves this issue, or just some
dry matches/paper/etc. Most importantly you need to prepare for homelessness.
Like I said it only take hours to die to the elements, if they are that bad of course, so make sure staying warm and dry is your first priority, then
everything else comes along as what is needed next
Find shelter, create fire for warmth and security, begin processing water, begin finding food.
Everything else is a luxury in a SHTF scenario. Don't strees over the wind up radio, most likely someone nearby has on anyway.
