Notice.


HURRICANE WARNINGS.

1. At the beginning of the Hurricane Season the public are advised to take precautionary
measures to ensure that all doors, windows, and shutters of their houses, offices, etc., can be securely
fastened. The same applies to buildings used as shelters for stock.
An adequate supply of hurricane lanterns, candles or electric torches is recommended, in the
event of the failure of electric lighting system during the storm.
2. Householders possessing a barometer should watch their instr, i ent carefully and observe
readings at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and at night time previous to retiring to bed. Any change lower than
the usual diurnal one of 0.1 inch should be regarded with some suspicion and more frequent
observations made.
3. All Agents of steamers and of sailing vessels which are approaching or leaving Antigua in
doubtful weather, are asked to communicate direct with the Harbour Master. This is especially essential
with regard to small sailing boats engaged in inter-island trade.
4. When barring up a house, on indications of bad weather or the approach of a hurricane, begin
with the side facing the direction of the prevailing wind, which varies as a rule from North West to
North East. Should the centre happen to pass over the island there will be a short period of calm
during which the northern side of the building 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 and door
securely fastened.

Acting Administrator.
