With the thermometer expected to hover below freezing for the next few days, a Code Blue is now in effect in New Brunswick through at least Wednesday morning. Residents without a place to escape the cold can go to the Elijah’s Promise Soup Kitchen on Neilson Street. The shelter will stay open through 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.
A Code Blue is declared when very cold temperatures of 20 degrees or below create a danger for those without shelter.
Anyone in need of help is advised to call 2-1-1 for assistance with housing and social services.
