Man did that suck......

I got my power back on after 26 hrs after that huge power blackout. Man was I worried about my tanks. No light, no filters etc... But everything is back and running and everything is ok. I live in Toronto Canada I hear it was out in New York and area, any one from there????

55g planted tank, CO2 System, Eheim 2217 & Fluval 4 Internal filter. Just over 2 watts per gallon, 30g planted semi-aquatic Newt and Toad tank, 20g African Cichlid tank and a 2g Nano

I'm curious, test for ammonia and nitrites please. I'm trying to decide what sort of procedures are best for the planted tank during a power failure. I'm about to go to 4, then 5, tanks and in a long power failure I need to know what to do.
