Update - July 5, 10 AM
Power has been restored to both the Egg Harbor Township county library branch and the Egg Harbor Township county senior center. Both are open today, July 5, during normal business hours.
In addition to the Hamilton Mall distribution of water and ice to Atlantic County residents today, 8 AM to 4 PM, the Dorothy Fire Hall remains open 24 hours a day until further notice to provide water and ice.
Many other municipal cooling sites have closed as power has been restored to many areas. However residents may call their local Office of Emergency Management to check on availability of sites if they remain without power and are in need of an air conditioned facility where they can cool off and refresh.
Residents are also reminded to take precautions to avoid heat-related illness as we experience yet another heat wave and excessive heat warning for Saturday.
