THURSDAY, JUNE 8, 1939 "Tip-Off" System, Warn ing Flash Is Advance Agent Of Wind BV VANCE TRIMBLE NEA Service Special Corresponds!! PORT ARTHUR, Tex., June 8.— Uncle Sam's weathermen are will Ing to meet a hurricane more thai half way. fn fad. they Insist on H So meleorologlsls of 12 cities strung In a halfiCtrcle around Ihe Gulf of Mexico, will work overtime from June 16 to Oct. 31 lo keep In 24-hour'operation nn elaborate warning system. The annual giilf hurrJcnne season is bcginnlngl For the fourth successive year i the government will put | n t 0 i lse \ its teletype network connecting the principal bureaus between Key West, Pla., nnd Brownsville Tex SHIPS SCAN THE SEA Selected ships at sea co-opera lively report weather observations four limes daily by wireless r/> the forecast center at New Orleans, La. This tips oft discovery ot Iroplcai disturbances while they are still far out at sea, and'enables warnings to he flashed over the, teletype, hours in advance, to coastal section in Ihe path of the blow.'Residents of the danger zone can rush precautions, beating- the wind to the punch. . . . "But persons living along tlie 2000-mile front of the."hurricane belt" don't .worry about these storms—until one is actually on the way. They know from experience that hurricanes chart a tricky course. A storm reported hearing down on a certain, point tor days might shift its course at the last minute t,and veer back into Hie gulf lo wear ilself out over the water. • A hurricane in (he gulf usually Is harmless—for large vessels can ride safely through It or . travel around. Smaller ships don't venture out from-port while a tropical disturbance is at large. ONE DEATH IN 1938 The Weather Bureaus' vigilance Is showing excellent results, in the five states bordering the gulf—TOY as. Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama nnd Florida—there wns only one hurricane fatality last year. This was at Lake Charles, La., raked by the only serious blow, to move Inland in 1938—with' the exception of the , "\y{ldcal'' hurricane which hit the'New"England stales. ' -... •• or nearly. Ri. dozen other tropical dlslirfban<ft5":which entered the gulf last' year none reached the American coast. Two red nags, with square black centers, flying from the sume mast are the Weather Bureau's warning signal. , ... When these go up at any point on the c6ast, residents lake them seriously. Although the storm may not be due, for hours, there's n sudden rush of nctivily. A Coast Guard cutter 'speeds to sea and rides along parallel ot the hurricane's course, reporting by radio to n land station. From this information, the Weather Bureau Is able to issue hourly advisory bulletins, estimating the lime Ihe disturbance will strike Ihe coast, and to report any change tn Ihe Intensity of the winds. WIND WHIPS IN CIRCLES "Hurricanes are something' like a Inrge whirling doughnut," explains E. w. Torrence, weather observer at Port Arthur. "The wind roars j are mi ci in an endless circle, with a diameter of possibly five to 10 miles. It is dead calm in the center. ,, "While the circular movement of • the wind is going 75 miles an hour ' or belter, the whole mass travels slowly—generally ID to 15 miles an hour." With a blow on Ihe way, windows of residences nnd downtown buildings are : boarded up. Public schools are opened to house persons fearful their oivn homes will not withstand the winds. Police. firc™°n, and civic organizations hold "disaster squads" in readiness. Residents are advised to fill large containers—usually the bathtub— with drinking water for use alter the storm, in event the local water system is polluted. Weather bureaus in the teletype circuit are Key West, Pla.; Miami, Fla.; Tampa, Pla.; Jacksonville, Pla.; Pensacola, Pla.; Mobile, Ala.; New Orleans, La.; Port Arthur, ^'Tex.; Houston, Tex.; Galveston, ~ Tex.; Corpus Christ!, Tex.; and Brownsville, Tex.
