Camden County: Important Snow Emergency Info!

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning in effect until Tuesday at 6PM.
A Winter Storm Warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice are expected, and strong winds are possible. This will make travel very hazardous.

Monday: Periods of light snow and flurries continue through the day. Snowfall accumulation 1"-3".
Monday Night: Strong coastal storm develops. Light snow gives way to steady snow, heavy at times and windy. Additional 5-9" of snow with possible drifting.
Tuesday: Storm may produce lingering snow, heaviest in the morning though light snow possible through the day and into early Tuesday night.

Storm total of 6"-12" possible. 

“County personnel will continue to monitor the storm and are treating the roads in preparation for the snowfall,” said Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Department of Public Works. "Our public works crew are prepared to plow any accumulation that takes place."

The storm will have some impact on the Monday morning commute, then significant and widespread impacts developing Monday evening and continuing through Tuesday afternoon. Areas of blowing and drifting snow will become a factor during Monday night and Tuesday.

“As always, when the weather turns hazardous we recommend that motorists remain cautious and give themselves extra time to reach their destinations," Leonard said. "In addition, please be conscious of public works vehicles on the roadways as they work to clear our roads."
In case of a power outage please report it directly to the appropriate utility provider list below:
