Re: Water and natural gas availability during power outage.

NG does require power, but not at the user side of the system. Most pumping stations can run off the gas in the pipeline for power, or shore power or both. The three stations around here use gas during the day, and shore at night to take advantage of the cheaper power rates.

In NY, it is very possibly that he has a cistern on the roof for his water supply. While it may have a pump to get the water to the roof, once it is there you are gold. To check, he should just pull up google earth.
