Patch has always said that we are a community hub, a forum where the community can go to share information. And during Hurricane Sandy, it was no different. Over the past two weeks, Patch readers have helped Westhampton-Hampton Bays Patch provide up-to-the-minute information.
Our readers uploaded over 100 photos, helping to paint a picture of Sandy's devastation so their displaced neighbors knew what was happening and had happened.

Our readers took the time to check on their fellow community members properties and answer questions about flooding and damage to which so many second home-owners and displaced residents were grateful.
And after Sandy, readers galvanized, uploading event information about fundraisers for the victims of Sandy; they posted blogs chock-full of advice; and announcements letting people know how they can help and were they can find important information.
