Martin County residents are under a state of emergency and voluntary evacuation orders.

County leaders say mandatory evacuations ahead of Hurricane Irma will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday in conjunction with shelter openings.

Officials say the order applies to residents living on the barrier islands (Hutchinson Island and Jupiter Island), Sewall's Point and mobile homes, as well as homes in low-lying areas.

County leaders advise that additional evacuation areas may be identified if the National Hurricane Center issues potential storm surge warnings.
