BALTIMORE (AP) — Public works officials are urging Baltimore residents to make sure their trash cans are secure, as high winds are predicted.
With winds up to 20 to 30 mph predicted for Friday, officials remind residents that trash from loosely tied or ripped bags create airborne hazards and get into streams and the harbor.
Residents are urged to make sure all loose objects on their property are secured or brought inside. Residents are reminded that city law requires the use of trash cans for debris.
