Cinnaminson Weathers Winter Storm

The storm may be over, but expect frigid weather for the next several days.

Despite having more than a foot of snow dumped on it, Cinnaminson weathered Tuesday’s snowstorm well, according to emergency management coordinator Dan Norman.

Norman said the storm didn't bring with it any major incidents, though there were several minor car accidents. The fire department and EMS had extra manpower on duty during the storm, but there were few calls to respond to, he said, adding that he didn't even open the emergency operations center.

He said Nixle and media alerts advising residents to keep their vehicles off the streets really seemed to help, as Public Works had virtually no issues plowing the roads.

"The (Public Works) superintendent said there were a lot more (cars off the road) than usual," said Norman. 

According to Norman, crews worked through the night Tuesday into Wednesday to clear, salt and sand roadways, and as of Wednesday morning reported that no roads were closed or impassable. 

Norman advised motorists to continue exercising caution, even when driving on plowed roads, and said property owners should be vigilant in monitoring outside water lines and sprinkler systems to prevent them from freezing and bursting.

The temperature is not expected to rise above freezing until Saturday. The high for the next few days will remain in the low to mid-20s, with the low in the single digits.
