Hurricane Precautions, 1956.

1. At the beginning of the Hurricane Season the public are advised to take precautions
to safeguard their homes and other property in the event of a storm. Duinrg a hurricane the
central electricity supply will bh turned off. and every household should therefore be provided with
a hurricane laterr, or a flash light (or preferably with both) which should be checked regularly
and kept in working order throughout the hurricane season.
2. Owners of barometers should take reading's daily at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Any change lower than the usual diurnal one of 0-10 inch should be regarded with suspicion.
3. The masters or agonis of vessel. if in doubt should communicate with the Harbour
Master 'or information.
4. When arr'ing up a Louse, on indication of ;d wither, ) begin with the side facing
the direction of the prevailing winid, w which varies from North West to Nort h East. ;Should the
centre of a storm pass over the island there will be a short period of c(I during which the
Northern side of the litilding could be opened up and the Southern and Westerly sides closed.
Very often, there is no c.'!ni. and under such circiustances it is wise to have everything securely
