OpenSource EV Charging Station Project
During a disaster EV owners have to plan ahead due to limited charging station opportunities and the time it takes to recharge an electric vehicle. Rapid rechargers take 30 minutes and there may only be 1-2 charging stations at an already very busy gas station during an evacuation.
There is an opensource project (everyday people add information to the project) to maintain a current map of EV charging stations across the country.

Check out the map to see charging stations in your area.
