Have you ever heard helicopters hovering overhead or sirens in your neighborhood, seen emergency vehicles racing down the street or in front of a school or business, been stuck in a prolonged traffic jam, had a sudden power outage or been caught in a sudden storm and wonder "what is going on?"
Don't be left in the dark. We at Patch work hard to make sure we get the latest breaking news up on the site to keep the community up on what's happening.
When news is breaking we often 'tag' it as breaking news and when we do you can get it sent right to you in your email inbox. Breaking news can include crime, police chases, accidents, fires, storm warnings, election results and big local issues and citywide issues, such as the upcoming decision on the Department of Water and Power substation proposal. Anything we think our readers would like to know right away.
