CAMDEN, NJ - With temperatures expected to settle in the 30's and forecasts calling for snow to blanket Camden Tuesday night, crews throughout the county are working to ease conditions for residents.
“Our DPW crews have been checking the plows and loading the salt trucks while continuing to monitor the latest weather forecasts,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. in a press release. “With rain and snow expected to create slippery roadways tonight when temperatures drop, our crews are already hard at work to keep traffic moving throughout the county.”
Up to two inches of snow may accumulate in some areas, according to officials.
In addition, Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez said municipalities in Camden County will be under a Code Blue Alert.
The alert will run from Tuesday at 7 p.m. to Wednesday at 7 a.m., as well as Wednesday from 7 p.m. to Thursday at 7 a.m.
“Over the next 48 hours, temperatures in our region are forecasted to dip into the low 30s and 20s during overnight hours, while a mix of wet winter weather brings precipitation overnight into Wednesday,” Rodriguez said. “In conditions like these, we want to place extra emphasis on the importance of getting everyone sheltered and out of the elements, checking on elderly relatives and neighbors and bringing your pets indoors.”
A “Code Blue” calls for municipalities with homeless populations, situational homeless or transient populations to activate their response plan to accommodate any immediate needs.
