The Cape May County Office of Emergency Management advises that all municipalities in Cape May County will be under a “Code Blue” severe weather advisory from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Wednesday and 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Thursday.

Code Blue conditions are in effect when the temperature drops to 32 degrees.

A Code Blue emergency is intended to protect homeless people living outside, on the streets, in parks or poorly insulated settings and who are at risk for cold related exposure and possible death.

People seeking shelter in a warming center should contact their local municipality. Additional resources are available by calling 2-1-1.
