What to do during Hurricane?

Ok so as many of you know (or are about to experience) there is a hurricane that is about the smash the east coast of the US. My question is, is there anything I can do to keep my krib fry alive if the power goes out for multiple days? No heater, no filter etc...

Im thinking just water changes, but with the power out, i wont even have warm water after a while.. uh oh
