A recent spate of hurricanes in the American South has brought up a new round of discussions on the effects of climate change on severe weather events.

Here's more from the Chronicle:
Most of the dangers come from generators being run indoors in places with poor ventilation. The effect is similar to running a car in a closed garage.
Here's what the Chronicle says about the dangers of CO and why generators are so precarious:
