Download the Patch App Before the Storm

Patch will keep you updated with local storm information on your iPhone or iPad.

If we lose power and our Internet connections when Hurricane Sandy passes by the Mid-Atlantic, you'll want the Patch app to keep updated with local information.

Patch offers a free app for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad (available for download here).

Also, be sure you're following Lorton Patch on Facebook and Lorton Patch on Twitter for updates, too! 

According to our App Store description, our app allows residents to:

Check Out:

  • the most relevant local news, events and editor tweets

  • Your voice, by commenting on a story
  • Your photos, by uploading them to stories and business listings
  • Your favorite stories and business listings, by sharing them on Facebook or via email
  • Your feedback about the app, by sending it directly to our team

  • Events to your iPhone’s calendar in seconds
  • Your favorite stories, business listings and events for easy access (We have baked in a feature that lets users cache any Patch content for offline viewing–in airports, subways, etc.

Is there an Android app in the works? The current patch places app only has business listings.

There is an Android app in the works that will include everything the iPhone app does. Unfortunately, it won't be ready by the time this storm hits. We'll definitely announce the new release when it's ready.
