FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

DCHHS Confirms Mosquito Samples Test Positive for West Nile

Ground Spraying Scheduled in Coppell

 

DALLAS (June 26, 2017) – Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) laboratory confirmed mosquito samples have tested positive for West Nile virus.  The mosquito trap was collected from the 75019 zip code of Coppell.

DCHHS encourages residents in affected areas to be a part of the solution by eliminating insect breeding areas and larvae before mosquitoes reach the airborne stage.  In conjunction with Dallas County municipalities, mosquito abatement teams are responding by treating areas and ground spraying is currently scheduled.

 

Mosquito spraying schedule, weather permitting:

Coppell

Tuesday, June 27 from 9 p.m. to  5 a.m.

Wednesday,  June 28 from  9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

 

Residents should remain inside during the time sprayers are in the area. Spraying will not be conducted in the event of wind speeds in excess of 10 mph or inclement weather.

 

Residents should use the 4Ds to reduce exposure to mosquitoes:

  • DEET All Day, Every Day: Whenever you’re outside, use insect repellents that contain DEET or other EPA approved repellents and follow instructions.
  • Dress: Wear long, loose, and light-colored clothing outside.
  • Drain: Drain or treat all standing water in and around your home or workplace.
  • Dusk & Dawn: Limit outdoor activities during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

 

Standing water can be treated with EPA-approved larvicides that are available for retail purchase. Larvicides are products used to kill immature mosquitoes before they become adults. Larvicides are applied directly to water sources that hold mosquito eggs, larvae, or pupae. When used well, larvicides can help reduce the overall mosquito burden by limiting the number of mosquitoes that are produced, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

 

DCHHS has information regarding mosquito prevention on its website.

26-year-old Esteban Santiago of New Jersey shot and killed 5 random people injuring 8 after taking time to reload handgun today at about 1:00 p.m. eastern time at the Ft Lauderdale, Florida airport.  The 26-year-old was arrested by Broward County Sheriff without injury.  Esteban Santiago is being interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigations,FBI, Broward County Police and the Ft Lauderdale Airport Officials.

Survivors of the shooting stated that Esteban Santiago, wearing a military identification badge suddenly pulled out his handgun, began shooting until he exhausted his cartridge, reloaded and started shooting again.  After unloading all of his arsenal Santiago laid down on the airport floor spread eagle with hands behind his head expecting to be arrested and not attempting to flee capture. Originally, Esteban Santiago injured 13 people.  But, 5 of his victims bleed out and died as a result of injuries according to Broward County Sheriff Israel.

FT Lauderdale Fl Airport shooting

Presently, there is no other clear and identifiable danger.  Law enforcement is still treating the airport and surrounding areas as an active and fluid investigation scene.  Which means every inch of the airport going outward will be searched for additional threats.  If persons were handcuffed and detained Sheriff Israel said they will be released once cleared as a threat.  Presently, only Esteban Santiago about 5 ft 7 inches around 155 to 165 pounds is under arrest.  It is not clear of Esteban Santiago’s origination flight or if any terrorist connections. One witness said Esteban came out of the Canada terminal with him.

The expressways leading to and surrounding the airport are experiencing delays.  Sheriff Israel asked that no one call 911 regarding shots fired at airport.  Rather, only use 911 for emergency issues unrelated to the airport shooting.

 

Air Canada reporting via CTV Toronto that they do not have a Esteban Santiago on their flight list.

CTA Derailment under investigation

This morning LUTG RADIO contacted the Chicago Transit Authority Media Relations department regarding the early morning CTA derailment at the O’Hare Airport terminal at 2:55 am.  Ms. Lambrini Lukidis of the CTA Media Relations stated that the incident is under investigations by the CTA, Chicago Police, National Transportation and they are awaiting results.  Ms. Lukidis stated the train is manually operated and is suppose to pull into the station at 1 to 2 miles per hour.  Due to the accident and damage it is assumed that the train was traveling at a faster speed.  Again, Ms. Lukidis is waiting for the authorities to complete a full investigation before any blame is determined.  At this time operator error or equipment failure can not be decided.  The accident is not related to the construction to improve the train line system for smoother passenger ride which began  on Friday March 21, 2014 at 10pm running through today, Monday March 24, 2014.

Listen to the interview with LUTG RADIO’S Kathy Brocks and CTA Media Relations,

WGN TV reported the derailment early this morning on Facebook.  See the photos.
