With Irene bearing down on the area, Patch will live blog throughout Sunday to keep residents up to date with new alerts, warnings and other news from local officials, the state's emergency management agency, the National Weather Service and more. More importantly, we'll receive reports from Patch editors in our neighborhoods as we all weather the storm.
Most of all, we want to hear from you. Tell us about any damage in your neighborhood. Are there trees down? Is the street flooded? What are you doing while you wait out the storm. Your reports and your stories are critical information for your neighbors. Keep 'em coming!
If you can't see our live blog, please go to http://www.coveritlive.com/ and keep up with Patch updates there (or download the coveritlive app.)
