unplanned power outage

The power just randomly went out and won't be back on till around 12. My boyfriend and I are both at work till 6. Should I unplug the filter and just let my air stones run? I'm not sure if my filters will start up on their own without me pouring water in them and I'm afraid to burn them out.
