Verizon is rolling out a fleet of mobile charging stations to West Virginia, Ohio, and New Jersey residents affected by Hurricane Sandy. At each Wireless Emergency Communication Center, as Verizon calls the trucks, you can charge your phone or in some cases hop on a laptop to send relatives an email. You can find a full list of station locations here – and no, you don't need to be a Verizon customer to take advantage of the service. 

Meanwhile, at least for the time being, charging and domestic calls are free at Verizon stores across the northeast. 

As Marguerite Reardon of CNET notes today, compared to rival AT&T, Verizon – which saw its NYC headquarters flooded – seems to be doing pretty well.
