The advisory will also be issued from 6 p.m. January 2nd continuously through to 6 p.m. January 3rd.

A Code Blue Weather Emergency is activated when the County approved Weather Service predicts severe weather conditions below the code blue weather limit.

“During these weather emergencies, we encourage everyone to check on elderly or handicapped relatives and neighbors that live alone,” Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Camden County Health Department, said. “It is important that most vulnerable among us are not left without heat or electricity.”
