Check on seniors, bring pets indoors, and stay off roadways

LOWER TOWNSHIP – According to the National Weather Service, a winter nor’easter is likely to bring snow, high winds and areas of coastal flooding to much of Southern New Jersey by Monday night into Tuesday.
The National Weather Service has also projected heavy snowfall accumulation in much of the area. Snowfall and high winds are expected to last through Monday night and go into Tuesday.
“Weather forecasts don’t always get it righ, but this storm looks like it is bringing some snow to our area,” said Lower Township Manager Jim Ridgway. “Lower Township is preparing for a significant amount of snow. The plows and personnel are ready.”
Ridgway said the Township has 20-plus pieces of equipment ready to deal with the forecasted snow, including plows and loaders.
Besides a last minute trip to the grocery store and a check for shovels, Ridgway suggested that residents keep a physical list of emergency numbers, make sure mobile devices are charged and vehicles have a full tank of gas. If travel conditions become hazardous, use common sense decisions to stay safely off the road.
Lower Township officials asked residents to be mindful of seniors and disabled residents in your neighborhood that may need additional help.
In the event of an emergency, the Lower Township Police Department can be reached at (609) 886-1619.
Shore Animal Control would also like to remind residents to please bring pets indoors during these hazardous weather conditions. Residents can call animal control for assistance at (800) 351-1822.
