This dashboard is designed to put a set of resources into one place to monitor social stream. The assumption is that electricity will be available. It may not be. Charge your devices, during a storm event, use only as necessary and close all applications that may use background power. Have an emergency backup battery for mobile phone. Also, old flip-style phones can be used for 911 calls or to text IMOK or RUOK.
