Would this help?
It depends on the wind direction.

The weakness in engineered roofing trusses is in the gable ends. If it comes from stage right, the end wall blows in.

...and the [four] ground anchors. If the house holds together instead of spontaneously dissassembling, they'd better be massive.

Florence is going to be a bad storm. There are a number of nuclear power plants in its path, and there are coal ash dumps, and large animal farms with large piles of animal waste - and who knows what else. Storm surge is going to be very high, winds are going to be very high, and there will be a lot of rain.

Florence is slow moving, so it will be parked (so to speak) for a while.

New Mexico is a good choice. Every morning Suspicious 0bservers puts up pictures of lightning strikes, in slow motion. The leader comes down and then one or more travel up from the ground.

Imagine what it was like when the mesas were being electrically extruded.

You have to keep your EVSE brick dry, I could have probably put it up under the hood.
Normally the EVSE brick is up under the porch over hang or inside the garage but not last night.
I only have a wall mounted L2 unit, but my plan when I get a mobile evse is to use a small plastic tote to keep the brick dry.

EVSE bricks do t really put off any heat, my 12 amp Panasonic charger puts off more heat than the duosida charger because of the control transformer. The duosida charger uses solid state for control power.

The EVSE isn't really a charger. The charger is built into the electric vehicle. The EVSE is just a fancy extension cord with a built in switch and a funky plug.
The only true external charging is done with CHAdeMO or the tesla super charger and those units come with their own enclosures.

I'm looking for a stainless steel wash down rated enclosure to put mine in.
Actually I would like one large enough to put 2 in there.
On for my leaf and one for a plug in hybrid my wife will be getting soon.
