The following Storm Warning Committee has been appointed
for the 1954 Hurricane Season.
Mr. Neville D. Williams, Meteorol'gical Officer, Bahamas
(Chairman).
Cmdr. T. A. Pack-Beresford, R. N. (Rtd.)
Mr. Oswald Moseley.
It is the duty of the Storm Warning Committee to decide what
advice would be most helpful t-, the Public when a hurricane threat-
ens any part of the Bahamas and to disseminate this advice as soon
as possible after the receipt of any Storm Warning issued by the
Meteor logical Service.
It is the function of the Bahama Division of the British Carib-
bean Meteorological Service to provide the fullest p-ssible informa-
tion regarding the path and intensity of these storms based on
all the latest informati-n available and to issue Storm Advisories
whenever it is considered that winds of hurricane force may occur
in any parts'of the Bahamas.
It is the duty of the Telecommunications Department to pr-vide
such additional weather reports from their Out Island Stations, with-
in the facilities at their disposal, as may be required by the Meteoro-
lnoiral Service, and to assist in every way possible in the rapid
distribution of all information and advice which may be issued by








OFFICIAL GAZETTE


the Meterolcgical Service and Storm Warning Committee.
The latest Hurricane Advisories and other information will be
posted in the following positions in Nassau:-
a. Telegraph Office
b. Pcst Office (South side)
c. Public Market
d. Development Board Office
e. R. T. Symonette's Shipyard
f. Meteorological Office, Oakes Field.
The position and probable course cf the storm will also be indi-
cated on a chart outside the offices of the Imperial Lighthouse
Service in East Bay Street.
General information on storms within the Caribbean and neigh-
bouring A lantic areas will be broadcast daily over Station ZNS 1540
Kcs at 9:15 a.m., 12:45 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. in conjunction with the
the Weather Forecasts and Summary of Out Island Weather Reports
broadcast at those times.
When a storm is located within the Bahamas area additional
broadcasts will be made at times to be announced and in the event
of New Providence itself being in the path of the storm broadcasts
will be made every hour or at mcre frequent intervals if necessary
Information will also be transmitted to all Out Island Stations
by telegraph.
The maximum of information will be given over the radio service,
Station ZNS, including all necessary instructions for the Protection of
life and property, and the times of these broadcasts will be published
in the Press and cn Public Notice Boards as well as at the beginning
and end of each transmission from the Radio Station.
Immediately on receipt of an official Warning that a tropical
storm may affect shipping in any part of the Bahamas a storm flag
which will be red with a square black centre will be hoisted at Fcrt
Charlotte, Fort Fincastle, Hog Island Lighthouse, Rawson Square,
Fort Montagu and Nassau Yacht Haven.
As soon as it appears likely that a hurricane will affect New
Providence itself, an additional flag with red and yellow diagonal
bars will be hoisted under the storm flag at the above localities.
Hurricane Advisories will be broadcast on the Ship-Shore Radio
Telephone circuit together with the Weather forecasts which are given
twice daily at Noon and Midnight, Eastern. Standard Time. All
ships which are fitted with radio telephone equipment should listen
to the Nassau marine telephone circuit at these times. Immediately
after the broadcast Captains of ships may file a telephone call to
to their Nassau Offices requesting any instructions or notifying the
action which they propose to take. In the event cf an advisory
indicating that a hurricane is likely to affect any part of the Ba-
hamas full information will be transmitted on the Ship-Shore tele-
phrne circuit at the following additional times 8:00 a.m., 12:00 noon,
4:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., Midnight and 4:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Should a storm actually enter the area of the Colony more frequent
transmissions will be made, the times being announced over the radio
teleph ne circuit. Captains of vessels should avoid making requests
for weather information immediately before or after the above times
but should make the fullest use cf these broadcasts and request
additional information only if absolutely essential. In the interest
of all users, calls when made should be as short as possible.
In general it is emphasised that all available inf-rmation will
be disseminated through the various channels detailed above as soon
as possible after receipt and the Public are earnestly requested
not to telephone the Meteorclogical Office, Telecommunications or
any other Public Department during Hurricane Alert. The Staff
and facilities of these Departments are extended to the utmost
during such periods and a flocd of telephone calls gravely injures
the efforts being made to track the path of the storm and thus to
protect life and property in these Islands.
Finally it mustbe appreciated that whilst every effort will be
made to give the most useful information and soundest advice, no
