exhaust flue on hot water heater when power is out
 
Should I shut down the gas and forego having any hot water?

What other choice do you have?

If it does not use a power vent and uses a standing pilot, you are fine. Even with a power vent, if it does not have a standing pilot, nothing is going to happen.
