Quick! Edumacate me on contact options in case...

... I lose cell service.

We are currently predicted here to get between 8 and 15 inches of rain. smiley-shocked003 Let's hope the levies hold, but I have my doubts...

I no longer have a landline, so the question is what I do if I lose cell signal ... do I have any other options. I don't have wired internet either ... just a wireless 4G remote access point. I'm assuming I can make calls using Skype or similar?

Edit -- current prediction:

I would think cell signal and 4G would be lost at the same time... but they should hold longer than anything wired.
Best wishes!!

My friends in Puerto Rico tried to use this during Maria, mixed results.

Be safe! Leave if you can. Better safe than sorry.

Unfortunately not an option for me for various reasons. It looks like it may be shifting to the west somewhat?:

Got my kid this when we thought they'd be spending the summer in a country with no vowels in its name:
