Dorian Live Updates: Fuel Avaliability & Station Outages

FYI, I belong to GasBuddy and they activate this service for hurricane affected areas. Local members who normally post gas prices now post information on whether gas stations in the affected areas have power and whether they have fuel available. I know that this is just starting, but the live updates have been activated for Florida so I wanted to make sure it's available for anyone in the area that's in need of fuel during this weather crisis - and it's been helpful in the past. Stay safe out there!

Live updates on fuel availability and gas station outages in areas affected by Hurricane Dorian.

Our fuel-availability tracking systems are active, notifying users of gas stations with no fuel or power. The GasBuddy app is free to download to find gas stations with fuel and power.

At the link:

We have activated our fuel availability tracker online for those in Florida, and are prepared to activate in other affected areas ahead of Hurricane Dorianís arrival to help motorists in affected areas find fuel starting immediately should stations run out.

When hurricane features are activated for an area, our free app can differentiate stations that have no gasoline, no diesel or no power so that motorists can try other stations. The crowdsourced tracker can be updated by motorists and displays the status for locations that have been reported to the GasBuddy app. Motorists are encouraged to report the status of any station they see to help others find gasoline or avoid stations with no fuel or power.

IF YOU NEED FUEL: When a motorist is near a station that has no gas, diesel or power, the GasBuddy app will automatically display NO GAS or NO DIESEL or NO POWER icons next to the station on the list screen, and the station will be highlighted in red on the map screen.

2. Yikes! And you're more than welcome!

I've been following the news and it doesn't look good for most of the state! I've belonged to GasBuddy for almost 10 years and they activate this option for any weather crisis so people in the affected areas know where they can find fuel where and when they need it rather than wasting time and fuel looking for it when it's dangerous enough just to be out there! Stay safe and check in when you can!

5. I've posted this before and people said it was helpful

I've belonged to GasBuddy for almost 10 years and it's an amazingly active site - just people all over the US and Canada keeping track of local gas prices - and in this case, where gas is available. I'm just trying to do what I could think of to help out.
