    • Linda during the last storm season here in Brisbane, prior to this, I purchased from Bunnings a battery operated version of a hurricane lamp, it has two power levels as well a flashing lights if necessary; safer and more cost effective in the long run for storms.

    • Thanks. We have two large torches always by our door, but the candles are fine just to sit next to if it goes on for a long time. We had a three days failure last year. Will go look at H. Lamps though.
