Here in Maryland, we were fortunate to get through the storm known as Sandy with little loss of life or property.
Further north, residents weren't as lucky. Sandy hit hard in many parts of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut with dozen of lives lost and billions of dollars in damage.
More than 300 Patch sites were impacted by Sandy. Many of those sites are in areas where residents are dealing with massive devastation. Patch editors there have been working hard to provide updates, often without the luxury of electricity, cell phone service or other services. Some have been displaced from their own homes, yet continue to work in order to keep their communities informed.
Check out these Patch sites for great coverage of the storm, and go to Patch.com for a full list of all the sites nationwide.
