The Office of the Camden County Health Officer has issued a Heat Alert for Camden County for today, July 15 through Friday, July 19 effective noon to 8 p.m. each day.  

“When the Camden County Health Officer issues a Heat Alert, municipalities are notified that it would be appropriate to open municipal cooling centers to the public.  Each municipality in Camden County has identified and is responsible for activating its own municipal cooling center,” said Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services.

The heat is being felt throughout New Jersey. The National Weather Service forecasts calls for heat index temperatures to be near 100 degrees for many parts of South Jersey. The forecast for Camden County calls for clear skies with highs in the mid 90s today. The heat index could make it feel like 102 degrees.
