Keep your radio or television on and listen for latest Weather Bureau alerts, warning?, and advisories. If power fcih, use your car radio. 2. Pay no attention to rumors. 3. Get. away from low-lying beaches or other locations which may be swept by high tides or storm waves. If passage to high ground i> over a road lik'ely to b« under water, leave early. Don't run th* risk of being marooned; 4. Be nun for hiuh water in ,r»a« where streams or rivers may flood after heavy rains. 5. If your home is out of danger from high tides and is well built then it ii probably the best plac« to weather the storm. «. Board tip windows or p ,,t storm shutters in pte™. When you board up 'ise good lumber secnrek- fastened Makeshift boarding may do more damage than none at all. Have strong bracing for outside doors. 7. Get m extra food. e-Hx-cially things which cr.n be eaten without cooking or with very little preparation. Remember 1h«! electric power may be off and you may be without refrigoration. 8. If emergency cooking facilities necessary, b« jure they ar* in working order. 9. Steri!i7» the bathtub, jugs., bottles, cooking utensils, and fill with drinking' water, as city water service may be interrupted. in. Have flashlights and/or other emergency lights in working condition and keep them handy. 11. "Be sure to have gasoline in your CUT. If electric power is off. filling stations m*y not be able to operate pumps for several days. J2. Check on everything that might blow away or be torn loose. Garbage cans. Harden tools, signs, porch furniture, awning?, and other objects become wespons of destruction in hurricane winds. Store them all inside if possible. n. Be sure that a window or door can b« opened on the le-e side of the house • . . the side opposite the one facing the wind. I*. If the center or "eye" of lh» stonv. pswes directly over, there will be a lull »o half an hour or more. Stay in a s a f« pla'e. Make emergency repairs during the lull if r.ecwarr. but remember the wind If necessary, but remember the wind will return suddenly from the opposite direction, frequently with even greater violence.
