This paragraph is from the Wall Street Journal. I've posted a few times here when members ask about generator use and I alway mention CO poisoning. All the warnings are in the user manual but most don't read it since they think they are smarter but definitely dead. You run the generator At least 50 feet from any window or door and that includes those with F150's with a built in generator. In Louisiana, where Ida made landfall Sunday as a Category 4 storm, the death toll rose to nine, as three people died of carbon-monoxide poisoning from portable generators and three nursing home residents died in squalor at a warehouse an hour north of New Orleans, where they had been taken to ride out the storm.
