STEM hurricane engineering  

Hi. I'm from Florida and had to share my best homemade hurricane invention. Guare antee you are going to loose power during a hurricane so you should be ready for it to become hot and dark inside. We've used this idea for 2 hurricane seasons now and are ready again this year.
We now call it
STEM HURRICANE COOLING AND LIGHT
The fan is a car radiator fan.
The light is a 12 volt light that we used helping a friend who was broke down on the side of the road one night.
We wired them to a car battery.
That was wired to a toggle switch.
When we lost power we turned on the switch and we had
AC and LIGHTS
We were actually the only people who had any kind of cooling air and light that didn't come from a gas generator.

I wanted to share this for others and hopefully generate new ideas on how to stay cool and bright during a hurricane.

Best
