The U.S. National Weather Service:

#Florence is forecast to be a dangerous major hurricane near the southeast U.S. coast by late next week (9/13 - ?), and the risk of direct impacts continues to increase. Tropical storm force winds could arrive as early as Wednesday evening.

Hurricane preparedness is one thing, and very serious, of course. But even for weather events of lesser strength, I found having a battery back-up/uninterruptible power supply (Back-UPS) is a necessity, allowing us to safely save whatever we're working on and shut down correctly before the power is completely gone. To have the power fail while working can result in more than just the loss of the file you're working on. Trust me.

Every piece of gear I have is plugged into its own 1500 UPS backup with surge protection. I also have a whole house surge protector as well (HIGHLY recommended). In addition to the protection from the occasional power blips,
the UPS units allow me to run normally for several hours (ISDN, Mac, Avalon, etc). The internal battery replacements for the units are also readily available and reasonably priced when they cycle out.
