Re: Power Outages (Puerto Rico)

For general information-- there have been youtube of how to charge your cell phone using a 9 volt square type battery and the spring from a ball point pen.  I sure have stored that info-- if we get caught without power and back up.  

Post Irma-- we told the people next door in Keys who (CRAZY!) rode it out -- that we had
hand cranked radio that also charged phones in our place.  But they weren't able to find it.  :((

They have received supplies now Big Pine Key is open-- so have a generator and some things.
Sounds additionally fool hardy-- but didn't have a battery radio--EEK!  So it was delivered yesterday.

The tiny  local radio station US1-- 101.4 was broadcasting right through the storm-- and 12 hours a day with info from officials.  And things like where they were delivering gas to the island-- vital info.

SO-- really important to have batteries and radio.  

that station is simulcasting again -- if you want to tune in.  Google it or an app like Tunein Radio.
It's a real life line for people there!
