Power outages

Hope everyone in Sandy's path has prepared for their aquariums not to have power.

Car battery & inverter can run basic life support for quite a long time.....

+1 in the battery and inverter. I only run a small circulation pump and a heater to minimize the load. If it gets cold you could wrap towels or blankets around your tank to conserve heat.

Okay and are there any other options if I don't have a batter source and how long can a tank go without any filters running

As long as you keep the water agitated which you can do by simply using a wooden spoon say every hour or so you would be ok for a few days
