There's a very good chance that the area will be without power for 5-7 days after Florence. So if you are anywhere close to the path charge your cars full. Even if your car sits for a few days after the storm a one time charge to full is not going to effect the battery.

If you are planning on leaving and driving your Tesla, also charge to full now! Don't depend on Superchargers that are close to the path for a charge. If the SCs in the area are working, they might be full from others trying to charge.

Also please help your fellow Tesla brothers and sisters out. If a supercharger is full while on the way out of "dodge" and others are waiting to charge, an 80% charge in a LR3 is plenty to make it to the next charger.

Be safe and leave now!

Depending on when you leave the area, you may not have a choice but to drive 20 if you are lucky.
In a combustion vehicle, getting stuck in traffic means that your fuel economy suffers and you have to refuel more often.
In an electric vehicle, getting stuck in traffic means you can go farther before refueling. :cool:
