Duolingo Daily Practice and Hurricanes

[deactivated user]

    I'm not sure if this has ever been asked before. What would you do if you live in a hurricane-prone area, and you're unable to continue your streak because you can't access Duolingo? If you're using the app, I can see that there will be no problem. But, what happens if you're using the web site?

    You need to register your progress every day with the Duolingo servers, so the app won't help you if you have no Internet access for several days. Buy a Streak Freeze ahead of time in the Lingot Store to cover you for one day.

    Stay safe!

      We get cyclones, which are just hurricanes with a different name because meteorologists are fun like that.

      If another comes whilst I use duo, I'll not be caring about keeping my streak up to be honest. You invariably loose power and have to fall back on batteries and generators - I wouldn't waste the battery on the app personally.

      This actually happened recently with hurricane harvey hitting where I live. I would rather protect myself from flooding than try to get my daily practice in.

      I suppose it's different for you since you have such a long streak. Just focus on your priorities and I hope you will be okay!

        Pominaus and MasterZsword, thanks! Personally, I'm less worried about my streak and more concerned about half of both trees going out while I'm away from the computer. That's why I'd asked.
