Every year, those of us in various parts of Tampa Bay keep a close eye on the tropics. When a tropical depression forms, we find ourselves stocking up our hurricane kits and keeping a close eye on the storm's path with every updated track form the National Hurricane Center.
Now, as Hurricane Sandy begins to impact the East coast of the United States, many of us find ourselves searching for photos, video and information about the storm. Some of us have friends and family in the area, others just like to see what's happening.
With hundreds of Patch sites up and down the East Coast, we've compiled some of the best coverage from towns directly in Sandy's path.
If you're looking for information from a particular town, head to Patch.com
Here is a compilation of some current coverage that we'll add to throughout the day:
