172 THE ANTIGUA, MONTSEIRRAT & VIRGIN ISLANDS GAZETTE,


Hurricane Precautions, 1960.



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. )Durin 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 Sarn Juan, 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 hico.


Storm Warning Signals.

AT DAY-The following signals displayed at the Harbour Master's Office, Goat Hill, Ottos Hill,
(Michael's Mount) Police Headquarters and other Police stations in the Island
denote the approach of disturbed weather:-
A. A RED FLAG with black square in centre means Tropical disturbance reported;
likely to affect island of Antigua-CAUTION ADVISED.
B. TWO RED FLAGS, with black squares in centre-HULRRICANE SIGNAL-
DANGER EXPECTED.
C. RED PENNANT when hoisted to serve as SMALL CRAFT WARNING only.
AT NIGHT.
A. TWO DETONATING GROCKETS will be Fired from the IHarbour Master's Office
to warn shipping.
B. A RED LIGHT will be displayed at Police Stations
DAY & NIGHT.
The Police will go through St. John's and Villages sounding their whistles.
Telephone Exchanges will inform subscribers. After a hurricane warning has been
received the news will be broadcast by Radio Antigua (3.255 megacycles; 92.18
metres) at regular intervals:-9 a.m., 5 p.m. and more often if necessary.
