Yes those Hurricanes are something you don't want to endur. We don't get as many as Florida does but down here in Texas (Galveston-Houston) we do get our share. During Ike people were without electricity for well over a week. So you will want to get either back up generators or battery pack for the air. Others that have experienced power outages might want to chime in here... She will need all the advise there is for that.

well, i figured the pump and light will be hooked up to my generator. No need for the heater as the temp in the house will increase anyways, just gotta keep a close eye on it... lets just hope it wont happen.
Maybe another member here has SW-hurricane experience ?!?!

@mwilliams: thnx!!! In o4 our power was gone for 2 weeks!!! But that was out in the rural area. i moved closer to a more populated area, so I hope it wont be as long as back then.
I think the most important thing is gonna be the generator
