The Cape May County Office of Emergency Management has issued a “Code Blue” advisory for the entire county through 6 a.m. Tuesday, allowing people to seek shelter in local warming centers during the cold weather.

Code Blue conditions are in effect when the temperature reaches 25 degrees or lower with clear skies or 32 degrees or lower with precipitation and weather conditions pose a danger to the homeless population.

Please be aware that there may be people in your municipality that require temporary sheltering during this advisory period.

Anyone seeking temporary shelter in a warming center should contact their local municipality. Additional resources are available by calling the County Homeless Hotline at 1-877-886-1325 or 1-609-886-1325.
