Sandy: Three Months Later the Work Continues

On October 29th, Sandy struck the East Coast, destroying homes and lives in thousands of communities - including 329 Patch towns.

Three months later, Forest Hills Patch Local Editor Matthew Hampton rode along with the American Red Cross Disaster Relief team to see how, three months after Superstorm Sandy, efforts to help those affected in the Rockaways continue.

In the video, Matt talks with volunteers, locals and the Red Cross, getting a firsthand account of how residents have been making do in what have most certainly been challenging times. Lines of people who need food continue to come out to the emergency response vehicles which go out into communities, like the Rockaways, and deliver food directly to those who need it most.

Patch is proud to support the efforts of the Red Cross and the many other organizations and individuals providing relief to those in need, and our editors and staff continue to provide coverage and essential information for these areas, 24/7.
