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-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
