1. At the beginning of the Hurricaniie Season tlhe public are advised to take precautions to safegu'.ard their homes and other property in the event of a storm. Dring a hurricane the central electricity supply will be turned off. and every household should therefore be provided with a hurricane J 01w or a flash light (or preferably withi both) which should be checked regularly
and kept in working order th oughout, the hurricane season.
2. (O)wners of barometlers should take readings diily at 10 a.m., I p.m. and 10 Any change lower than the usual diurnal one of 0-10 inch should be regarded with suspicion.

4. When barring up a house, on indication of bhl wv ,ther, begin with the side facing the direction of te prevailing wind, which varies from North West to North East. Should the centre of a storm pass over the island there will be a short period of cal during which the Northern side of the building could be opened up and tihe Southern and Westerly sides closed. Very often there is no calm, and under such circumstances it is wise to have everything securely fastened.
