PERTH AMBOY - The recent cold snap has prompted action across New Jersey in an effort to protect people from the weather.

News 12 New Jersey reporter Ranji Sinha was at a Perth Amboy warming center set up by the Salvation Army. It was one of several warming centers organized by the group in the state.

Edison Heating and Cooling officials say they have been sending their crews out into the cold to get heat back on for customers who had lost it.

"We're well prepared for [the weather]. Conditions are taxing on the technicians, especially commercial applications. Out on rooftops. It's a difficult job but it's what we do," says manager Pat Black.

News 12 meteorologists say wind chills overnight and early Sunday morning could make it feel like it's as cold as 30 below.
