Flood and mosquitoes

September 18, 2002

Seminole County - Flooded areas in Seminole County are breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Health officials say they are concerned about West Nile Virus, but it's not a top priority. Right now, they're battling other immediate issues like clean drinking water and tetanus shots.

Those who are educated about the virus are not worried. Tracy Johnston says, "I have children and I'm more concerned with them and I spray them. It seems the people who have gotten sick from West Nile have had other problems as well. Their health was compromised to begin with."

The City of Donalsonville is spraying for mosquitoes daily.
