Patch Covers Sandy in New Jersey, New York

Along the Jersey shore and near New York City, Patch has covered the impact of the superstorm.

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.

Did you see on the evening news Friday night that NJ turned back power companies who were not union employees? What are they thinking? Very disappointing.

I went to Point Pleasant Beach, NJ yesterday to drop off supplies to a friend that lives there. Luckily, her house was spared, but she has been helping others with clean up. We dropped off clothes and supplies to the high school collection center and the food bank. Sad to see so much damage to people's homes, but nice to see the whole community helping each other.
