As Hurricane Florence approaches, there are several steps people can take to help survive a potential disaster. Before the power goes out, fill your washing machine with ice to serve as a makeshift refrigerator. Pack in what you want to keep chilled, and though the ice will drain away, the food will stay cool for a while. You can light up an entire room by wrapping a camping headlamp around a bottle of water. And you can charge your phone with the jumpstarter from your car.
