I failed to mention having a small DC/AC inverter for cell phone charging and laptops that plugs right into the cigarette lighter...they may or may not come with USB charging ports. I also like Michael's idea of the propane tanks...they have a number of uses and last a good long time. I also forgot to add some generators can be made to run on propane and/or natural gas, others on diesel and for folks really off the grid...solar. One note about AM radio; at night many stations must reduce transmission power to within a few miles of their towers or completely go off the air in favor of stations allowed to broadcast at 50,000 watts at night; the one we most know is WWL-AM 870 out of New Orleans which has excellent hurricane reporting regardless of where along the Gulf coast.
