With Hurrican Florence bearing down on the Carolinas, I thought we should discuss how owning a plug-in car might affect those potentially impacted. First, I hope everyone in the danger zones has evacuated inland. Besides the high winds and the danger they bring, there is a serious danger of flooding, even far from the coast. If there is any way this Forum can be a helpful resource to those affected, please let us know what we can do to help. In the case of this natural disaster, there has been some time to prepare for evacuation or, for those further inland, to assess how local flooding may affect you. Luckily, electricity has yet to be impacted, but it definitely will be. In some areas, I imagine it could take weeks to restore service. But even in places far from the coast, there is a high likelihood outage will occur. How have you prepared to deal with this or another disaster scenario. Do you keep a 5-gallon container of gasoline on hand? How about a portable generator? What other things should we consider?
