In the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, hundreds of local residents are still reeling from her damaging effects. To help us all better weather this storm, the Independent wants to know how you and your towns were impacted. What better way to share your experiences and stories than through a picture?
Help personalize our coverage of the storm by sending us your top Irene photos with an explanation of where it was taken, and we'll try to get them up as soon as possible. Please post your photos on our Facebook page, add them to our Flickr pool or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org!
