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. During a hurricane the central electricity supply will be turned off, and every household should therefore be provided with a hurricane lantern 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 readings daily at 10 a.m., 4 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 agents of vessels if in doubt should communicate with the Harbour Master for information.
4. When barring up a house, on indication of bad weather, begin with the side facing the direction of the prevailing wind, which varies from North West to North East. Should the centre of a storm pass over the island there will be a short period of calm during which the Northern side of the building could be opened up and the Southern and Westerly sides closed. Very often there is no calm, and under such circumstances it is wise to have everything securely fastened.
5 The United States Weather Bureau at San Juai, Puerto Rico, issues regular weather reports for the Eastern Caribbean which are broadcast in Spanish and English daily throughout the hurricane season by several radio stations in Puerto I, ico. Owners of radios should make a habit of listening to these broadcasts which may be heard over the following stations at the times and on tLe frequencies and wavelength shown: BROADCAST TIMES (LOCAL)
