Despite having roughly a foot of snow dumped on it, Moorestown weathered Tuesday’s snowstorm well, according to the township’s emergency management coordinator.
Moorestown Police Lt. Lee Lieber said Public Works had cleared the main thoroughfares and was working on plowing the secondary roadways as of Wednesday morning. Though most of the roads were clear, Lieber said motorists should still exercise common sense and caution, as the plowed streets “still have a coating on them,” which could make driving difficult.
Police and other emergency services responded to 10 motor vehicle accidents and roughly a half-dozen calls for disabled vehicles during Tuesday’s storm, Lieber said.
“It was obviously more accidents than we have on a normal day … but nothing more than we normally have during a snowstorm,” he said, noting that most of the accidents were minor fender benders. "Otherwise, it was relatively quiet."
Lieber said blowing snow and below-freezing temperatures—which hinder the ice melt’s ability to do its job—continue to be a concern, and again stressed that motorists should be careful when driving.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.
