If you cannot store the entire unit in a safe and secure place disconnect the tank, store in a shed or garage, and anchor the grill best you can.

Dear Ellen,

I'm so sorry I didn't see your question yesterday.  "G" was right.  If you are now in an area with no electricity, though, and you are not familiar with how to use it, don't start now; ask a neighbor for help; it might make for a better dinner!

Also, absolutely, positively, DO NOT bring a propane grill or any other kind of grill into your home, apartment, etc. to make dinner.  This is a perfect way to survive a storm and get killed during the recovery period.

Stay safe, Mary

As an additional consideration for your propane grill, think about this.  If your area is hit hard by a hurricane and you're using your grill to cook with, be careful about WHEN you use it.  If time has dragged on, like after Katrina, and neighbors are running out of food and the smell of your grilling is wafting over the neighborhood, guess who's about to become supply central? 

Prepare your family first, try to help others whenever you can, but keep in mind that things may change the longer an emergency scenario lasts.
