BARNETT WORKS TO RESTORE SERVICES AFTER HURRICANE

 BARNETT WORKS TO RESTORE SERVICES AFTER HURRICANE
 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Barnett Banks, Inc.


(NYSE: BBI) is working to restore full operations in South Florida counties in the wake of Hurricane Andrew. Task forces worked through Sunday and Monday nights to open on Tuesday as many offices and ATMs as possible in affected counties.
 "Our goal is to get back to normal business operations as quickly as possible as Civil Defense authorities clear areas and utilities are restored," said Allen Lastinger, president of Barnett Banks, Inc. Affected counties include Monroe, Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Lee and Collier. Lastinger noted that Barnett's data processing centers around the state are functioning and that cash, equipment and supplies for ATMs and offices are being deployed.
 Barnett announced that it would waive fees its customers normally pay to use non-Barnett ATMs in the affected counties through Sunday, Aug. 30.
 "We want to minimize the amount of customers' travel to obtain cash," noted James Covington, director of marketing.
 Offices in every other Florida county are expected to be open for business as usual Tuesday.
 Customers in Dade and Broward who do not find locations open may go to neighboring Palm Beach county offices which are gearing up for them, noted Mike Strickland, president of Barnett Bank of Palm Beach County.
 Barnett Bank's telebanking service is operating as normal. Customers may access account information by calling 800-441-2999.
 With $32.4 billion in assets and 597 offices in Florida and Georgia, Barnett Banks, Inc., is Florida's leading financial institution, and the 18th-largest in the United States. Its stock (BBI) is listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
