Storm Alert

As most people on the east coast know, there is a storm system coming. My area is currently under a Sever storm warning and a tornado watch.

There was just a tornado in Queens which is about a 2 hour drive for ME.

I'm scared about my fish and the dangers of a storm like this. I 'vee heard of them gettin shocked from power outages, so I'm wondering if anyone can help me?

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Something like that. Like, the power went out and somehow it managed to send a shock through the filter, or something or other. I saw it a few months ago so I don't recall the finer details.

Sounds to me like a random freak accident. Shouldn't even be possible.

We had thunder at 7am and some rough storms up until about 11am but it's quieted down a bit to just a little rain.

I have a surge protector for my fish just in case this happens or if it gets wet it won't shock him you may want to invest in one they are cheap and its not such a bad idea just to be cautious.
