As you know, Hurricane Irma may impact our area within the next few days. We would like to remind you to take the following precautions:
Carnes Crossroads is in Evacuation Zones G and H. Check the evacuation maps for your specific location.
Be sure to check around the entire perimeter of your residence and secure or bring inside any exterior items such as trash cans, planters (both hanging and potted), garden hoses, wind chimes, yard art, furniture, grills, bird feeders, basketball hoops, sports goals & other play/recreational equipment and any other loose items that could damage your property or neighboring properties or become life threatening projectiles.
All builders and contractors have been asked to remove or secure their dumpsters with a cover and to remove or secure all port-o-lets and loose materials at their job sites. If you are having personal renovations or remodeling at your home, please remind your contractors/builders about these items.
