Hurri ca ue Prccautions, 1959.

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 flasl 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 cehanL'e lower than ti u-d, iil unal one of U'i) inch shouldI be regarded with suspicion.
3. 'The masters ,r ag:en:s 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 wild, 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 WeaTh'-r Bureau at San Juan, Puerto Rico, issues regular weather
a'eports for the Eastern Caribbean which are broadcast in Spanish and English daily throughout the
daurricane season by several radio stations in Puerto Lico.
