Sorry to hear about all the trouble! I live in hurricane country and even I've never been hit that hard! I can't afford a generator, but I do need to go and buy some battery operated aerators at the bait shop. For about $5, you can get the ones that are just a diaphragm pump running on a few D batteries that will run for hours and can drive a decent sized airstone.
But for $30, they have a small powerhead with an air injected venturi that runs off a 12V car battery. You could keep that reef aerated pretty well with one of those. Wal-Mart has them in the sporting goods department.
Glad to hear you're ok, though!
