3. Types of Hurricane Warnings to the Public.
There are two types of hurricane warnings to the
public, viz :
(ii) Warning to take cover.
The cautionary warning means that a storm will
not directly affect the island but can be of interest
for ships and other organizations, or that a dis-
turbance may pass over the island but is expected
to be of moderate intensity.
In St. George's the cautionary warning will take
the form of :
(I) Firing of two maroons (guns) from the
(2) Hoisting of a red flag with a black centre
at the Foit by day.
(3) Hoisting of a rea light at the Foi by

Warning to take Cover.
This warning will indicate that a hurricane is
expected and that it will pass over the island
Take cover warning is as follows :-
St. George's : Church bells will ring for 5
The siren will blow for 5 minutes.
Other Parishes :Church bells will ring for 5
4. After the Cautionary Warning :
The cautiona y warning will give you ample
time in which to make your final pr epaiations and
to see that your supplies are near at hand.
It is a good plan to paste strips of paper over the
glass window during this period, particularly if
there are no shutters. This strengthens the glass
and minimises splintering.
Secure all loose material that may be in the yard.
All fishing boats should be dawn up well above
high water mark.

See that all livestock have plenty of water and
food and fasten them in securely.

water for drinking.

side doors and do not open them until the hurricane
Remember that a sudden calm does not mean the
end of the storm but that the wind will blow again
from he opposite direction.
Buckets of sand might also be prepared in case
any fire breaks out.
If shelter is taken in a house that shows sign of
collapsing the best place to take cover is under the
stairs or under a stout table or bedstead.
Do not go outside during the hurricane.
If you have to take cover do so in as secure a
shelter as possible, certain churches, schools and
public buildings may be open for those wishing to
shelter in them.
If you go to shelter in any of these buildings take
some food with you.
Do not shelter in Ravines or low lying areas that
are likely to flood.
If you live in a low lying coastal area take shelter
on higher ground further inland. There will
probably be very high seas.
If you are taking sheller in a cellar, take with
you your supplies of rood, lanterns, matches, etc.
Do not forget a tin opener.
If possible, take some light articles of furniture
and bedding and anything that will make for
An axe or other sui able ool is also useful in
case the entrance gets jammed.
A bucket or other receptacle with sand and dis-
infectant should be provided for sanitary purposes.
6. After the Hurricane :

Do not crowd round relief centres needlessly.

work to do.

not be pleasant.
Assist the members of the Hurricane Relief
Organizations as much as possible when asked to
