I am late to this party so cannot help the OP but may be able to help others. I live in FL and plan to use my TT as part of my hurricane evacuation plans. Assuming I leave early enough I can get out of FL and at least two states away in nine hours (I already have multiple planned routes). Depending on the storm that may not get me away from all of the wind but it will get me out of the hurricane. To combat this I have bought four anchors and straps to attach to my TT so that I can partially stabilize it against the wind. If I cannot get far enough away I plan to park the TT against a building and stay in a hotel while the storm passes. Either case I get out of dodge and take a bunch of my stuff with me.
The other thing I have done is purchase three 15 gallon gas cans so that I have 45 gallons of extra fuel. This extra plus what I carry will get me to my planned destination with no requirement for a working gas station.
OP, I am very happy to hear you are OK. Having been through a number of hurricanes in a concrete house I have no urge to experience one in a trailer. Grin.
