Hurricane Precautions, 1961.

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 master 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 lrilding 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 \Vea;thcr Bur[-fu at i'an J.h1uin, lPurto Rico, issues regular weather
reports for the Eastern (a;:ibbean whic!! arre :roadcas':tt in Spanish and English daily throughout the
hurricane season by several radio stations in Puerro !ico.

Storm Warning Signals.

AT DAY-The following signals displayed at the Harbour Master's Office, (Goat Hill, Ottos Hill,
(Michael'. Mount) Police Headquarters and other Police stations in the Island

A. A RED FLAG with black square in centre means Tropical disturbance reported;
likely to .ifect island of Antigua-CAUTION ADVISED.
B. TWO RED FLAGS, with black squares in centre-HURRICANE SI(GNAL-
