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 and
destruction of food crops and food sup-
plies, and number of individuals ren-
dered destitute.
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
discretion.
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
that the report may be full and com-
plete.
RELIEF.
6. In addition to the District Hur-
ricane Authorities, Local Hurricane
Authorities have been appointed as

7. These Local Hurricane Authori-

as possible to the District Hurricane
Authority.
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 10 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.

ganizing of these measures the fol-
lowing CENTRAL HURRICANE RELIEF
COMMITTEE has been appointed :--

The HON. FINANCIAL SECRETARY
The Hon. J.O. AIRD
The DIRECTOR OF WORKS
The SOCIAL WELFARE OFFICER
The Very Revd. the Dean of Roseau
The Rector, St. Georges Church
The Methodist Superintendent
Minister. Roseau.

NOTICE.

HURRICANE WARNING.

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-Last.
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.
DOMINICA.
The following signal will be made
from Fort Young, Roseau, as a warn-
