ing Magisterial District "G.".

cane Authority for each District as

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.

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

deavour to keep in close touch with

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.

loss or damage should apply to the

from the North-West to North-East.
'Should the centre happen to pass over
the island during the period of calm
