Iโ€™m not in an affected area but I was working through scenarios on what I would do this week since this is only a matter of time as a disabled medical baseline customer in San Francisco. Some thoughts ๐Ÿ‘‡

1) there is 1 community resource center per county that is open only during the day with capacity to serve 100 people based on what I read.

How in the world would that be adequate in San Francisco? If I went there to recharge some equipment imagine the wait time!
2) I live in a multistory building and while power outages are not uncommon, an outage of 2-5 days would trap me in my home since the elevators will be out. If I had to evacuate I would have to leave my power chair which is several hundred pounds.
