You cannot run a portable generator exposed to the storm! They have to be sheltered. NOT in the house or an attached garage. If sheltered in a storage shed you can use a weather proof contractor’s 10 gauge extension cord, but there are limitations on length and the volts needed...such as a well which is run on 220 v.

Some info:

Just remember: After power is restored don’t store the generator with gasoline remaining in the thing...empty it or you may have trouble getting it started again.
