Question: Would smashing the meters with an axe really cause the power to go out and the water to stop, or is it just plot convenience?

Answer: It's been years since I watched this one, but here's an engineer's opinion. Yes on the electrical meters, no on the water. If you strike an electrical meter with sufficient force to dislodge it from the main electrical service contacts, the flow of electricity will stop. Striking a water meter with an axe might destroy the metering mechanism and cause a leak, but water will still flow. Only severing the metal water service pipes would stop the water, but that would also cause a major flood.
