tion of relief in the event of a hur-
ricane, which is re-published in this

ing Magisterial District "G.".
2. There shall be a District Hurri-
cane Authority for each District as
(a) For THE ROSEAU DISTRICT, the
Roseau Town Council.
,(b) For THE WESTERN DISTRICT,
the Magistrate, District "E."
.(c) For THE EASTERN DISTRICT,
the Magistrate, District "F".
(d) For THE NORTHERN DISTRICT,
the District Officer.
3. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will submit urgently to the Adminis-
trator his first rough Report as soon
as possible after the disaster. The
Report should give such information
as may be considered fairly accurate
and also an opinion as to the extent
of the disaster in those parts of the
district from which there are only
rumours, with an estimate of the pos-
sible requirements in the way of relief.
This report should also give a rough
estimate of loss of life, serious per-
sonal injury, damage to houses ani
destruction of food crops and food sup-
plies, and number of individuals ren-
4. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will send in further reports correct-
ing and amplifying the first report and
giving such details as are possible, as
soon as receipt of information justifies
his doing so; and he will continue to
send in daily or periodical reports, as
may be necessary, acting on his own
5. The Officials of each District will
afford the District Hurricane Authority
.all the information in their power,
with the least possible delay, in order

7. These Local Hurricane Authori-
ties will.take emergency measures for
affording relief and will report as soon
as possible to the District Hurricane
8. In the event of communication
with the District Hurricane Authority
being difficult or impracticable, the
Local Hurricane Authority will report
direct to the Administrator.
9. Each District Authority will en-
deavour to keep in close touch with
the Local Hurricane Authorities in
the various areas in his District and,
in spite of there being no such vote,
will be justified in expending the
money urgently needed, whether for
special messenger or for food, without
awaiting the Administrator's authori-
ty, up to a limit of 5 for each Dis-
trict. Just as the Administrator will
authorise urgent expenditure in anti-
cipation of being able to justify it to
the Council and Secretary of State, so
the District Authorities may rely on
the refund of the sums they expend
without authority, provided that they
can show that the expenditure was
reasonable and the need for it urgent.
10. The Public who have suffered
loss or damage should apply to the
Local Hurricane Authorities in each
area and not come or send to the
Officials at Roseau.
11. For the further and better or-
ganizing of these measures the fol-
lowing CENTRAL HURRICANE RELIEF
COMMITTEE has been appointed:-
His Honour the ADMINISTRATOR,
The HON. FIN. SECTY.
The Hon. J.O. AIRD,
The DIRECTOR OF WORKS,
The SOCIAL WELFARE OFFICER,
The Tery Revd. the Dean of Roseau,
The Rector, St. Georges Church.
The Methodist Superintendent
1. At the beginning of the hurricane
season and generally in the month of
July, all shutters and fastenings should
be thoroughly overhauled and renewed
where necessary. In the case of de-
tached shutters identification marks
should be clearly painted on each, cor-
responding with the number and loca-
tion of each window..
2. When barring up a house on
indications of bad weather or the ap-
proach of a hurricane--begin with the
side facing the direction of the pre-
vailing wind, which varies as a rule
from the North-West to North-East.
Should the centre happen to pass over
the island during the period of calm
the north side should be opened up
and the southern or westerly sides
closed. Very often, however, the
hurricane shifts directly from North-
East to South East with little or no
interval of relative calm, and under
such circumstances it is wise to have
every window securely fastened.
3. For the information of the public
generally it may be stated that a
special hurricane code is in use and
on the indication of a falling barometer
and prevailing hurricane symptoms,
mutual telegrams are interchanged;
this is supplemented by a voluntary
service by the Cable and Wireless
(West Indies Limited) who have kindly
undertaken to publish daily barome-
tric and other weather observations
from the observations from the neigh-
DOMINICA. The following signal,
will be made from Fort Young, Roseau.
as a warning in event of probable ap-
proach of a hurricane or severe gales
One gun or rocket will be fired at
any time of the day or night, and a
red flag having a black centre will be
hoisted on the signal staff by day, and
a red lantern by night.
Two guns or rockets will be fired in
succession, and two red flags with
black centres will be hoisted by day
and two red lanterns by night.
When the signal is given, steps
should at once be taken to secure pre-
mises on shore and vessels in port
against impending danger.
On improvement of weather condi-
tions after either the Cautionary or
Danger Signals have been made, and
it is considered that the hurricane has
passed Dominica, a blue flag will be
With regard to Portsmouth, the
same signals will apply,. the necessary
flags and red lanterns being hoisted
at the Police Station, Portsmouth.
