How to React To Storms Is to Be Taught By DOUGLAS LARSEN ••: NEA Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON - (NEA^-The shocking death toll from the Louisiana hurricane was a base of public education lagging too far behind scientific progress. This is how the U.S. Weather Bureau analyzes that tragedy. To correct this situation, and prevent the same thing from happening in a half dozen similar danger spots, the Bureau is drafting a million dollar emergency public education program. "Our forecasting of that storm and the water surge was just about as accurate as scientific methods can achieve," a Bureau spokesman asserted, "but the people just failed to react to our warnings." The area had a 24-hour notice of the approach of the winds with the prediction of a five foot surge of water. Eleven hours before the water hit, the Bureau issued an official bulletin that the surge | would be nine feet high, enough to inundate the areas which were flooded. Didn't Understand "The trouble was that the people didn't really understand what our warning meant or felt that it just couldn't be happening to them," the Weather Bureau spokesman said. "They stayed home when they should have evacuated the area," he says. The education program which the is drafting would include movies, lectures, drills and conferences with public officials for the preparation. of emergency plans. Newspaper reporters and local radio and TV commentators would be instructed on how to interpret and report Bureau warnings to the public faster and tnore effectively. Sheriffs, Red Cross people, civil defense offici- eials and local and state police would be called together for briefings on the special problems resulting from p hurricanes. During the next few months these education efforts would be concentrated in low, coastal communities most vulnerable to hurricane - caused water surges.

Commission Chairman William' P. Housel said the commission has no enforcement personnel and has asked the State Safety Department to look into the situation. "We asked the department to do what it thought should be done about it," Housel said. "Our suspicion is based on a review of sales at the state liquor stores, and rumors we get. However, a study of the sales does not develop any pattern," he said. * Chief, R. W. Nebergall of the; Iowa Bureau of Criminal Investi- j gation said his agents are\watch-j ing all of the state's borders for violators. He said that recently his j agents- picked up an Illinois car at Davenport containing Illinois liquor. The driver was fined $300 and a court case was filed to confiscate the car. He,said also that recently Sioux City pqlice had a similar case. j "However, the situation today is ! nothing like it was in the early 40s,"* Nebergall said. "In those days we filled the bureau's need {.for automobiles by the use of confiscated cars." The '57s averaged seven per cent , the increase will hit just as the; recent national poll of dealers run higher than the '56s.

Most Vulnerable Among the areas most vulnerable to surges or waves, Weather Bureau officials say, are the Padre Islands in the Gulf of Mexico, near Corpus Christi, Tex.; the Dolphin Islands near Mobile, ,Ala.; the Jacksonville, Fla., beaches; and the coastal areas near Charleston, S. C. There are many other sections similar to these. "Tens of thousands of people flock to these spots on weekends or when it's hot and if a storm should strike at these times the death toll could be fantastic." one of the Bureau experts claims. "We shake in our boots when storms threaten these areas, for this reason," he adds. The new surge forecasting is the result of emergency funds granted to the Bureau by Congress in 1956, following the terrible hurricanes of the previous season.' Congress will be asked* to appro- { iriate the additional million dol- ars to finance the education program the Bureau is drafting. Last year the Bureau ran a small pilot public education program in Kansas City on how to respond to tornado warnings. As a result, the death toll was reduced more than 50 per cent the next eastern Iowa were off more than $242,000 in fiscal 1956, compared to the previous year. Sales in three stores in western Iowa were off more than $115,000 the same year. Officials said some of the decrease probably was due to a live per cent increase early in 1955 in prices at "the stores. However, sales at 12 Interior Iowa stores showed an increase of more 'than $673,000 at the same time sales "were dropping at the border stores.
