4:01 am
detours, more information. here is what it looks like over that way. this is our camera right at route 30 just off route 73. so, again, the roads are wet. we're above freezing, so i don't think we have to worry about any that far black ice, but the slush that's caused from the water and the snow melting, that could be just as slippery this morning. and cherry hill, new jersey, accident investigation on route 38, closed right in front of the cherry hill mall. so watch for some local detours this morning, then water main break from last night, route 130 riverton road over in cinnaminson. karen, thomas, back over to you. >> thank you so much, there, bob. we want to get right to. >> this happening right now. breaking news, out of gloucester township, people are being told to shelter in place. they have a person who is barricaded inside after home. let's get right out to jennifer voice with what we are learning right now, jenny? >> good morning, karen, we did talk to gloucester township police chief harry earl just a short time ago. he said this barricade situation has been going on since 8:00 last night, and it
