TN Dept of Health has confirmed West Nile Virus and La Crosse Virus infections
WVLT News Thursday September 7, 2017

The Tennessee Department of Health has now confirmed 19 human cases of West Nile Virus infection and 11 cases of La Crosse Virus infection in the state so far in 2017. We typically see an increase in mosquito-borne illnesses caused by West Nile Virus and La Crosse Virus in our state this time of year, said TDH Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH. There are no vaccines for these illnesses, so it's important to use insect repellent on skin and wear long, loose and light? clothing to make it harder for mosquitoes to bite and easier to spot them. Buying or properly treating clothes with permethrin, which is like body armor against mosquito bites, is also a good idea for higher-risk situations. TDH urged Tennesseans to increase their efforts to avoid mosquitoes. It's also important to limit mosquito breeding sites. Individuals can eliminate potential breeding sites if they tip and toss standing water, and drain and cover objects near homes or businesses that may contain or collect water.

Peg Broadcasting News Friday September 1, 2017

A woman was rushed to the hospital Friday afternoon after she was severely burned at the Cumberland County Rescue Squad on 10th Street. Reportedly, the woman was making candy apples for the Fair around 1 p.m. when the machine blew up. She suffered possible 2nd and 3rd degree burns to her face, arms and hands. Emergency crews initially attempted to fly her out, but no helicopter could land due to the stormy weather. The woman was taken to Cumberland Medical Center where she was stabilized with plans to transport her to the burn unit at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville. Peg Broadcasting is withholding the victim's name at this time until her family can be notified of her injuries.

 


UPDATE: Colonial pipeline expected to carry fuel by Sunday
AP/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday August 31, 2017

The good news, there should not be a shortage of gas in Tennessee for the Labor Day Weekend. The bad news, it is going to cost you more at the pumps.

The operator of the Colonial Pipeline, which provides nearly 40 percent of the South?s gasoline, estimates it can resume carrying fuel in the Houston area by Sunday, potentially avoiding a lengthy shutdown that would intensify gasoline shortages.

The Georgia-based company remains able to operate its pipeline from Louisiana to states east and northeast of there, though deliveries will be intermittent, the company said.

Huge challenges remain for the nation's system of getting gasoline to the pumps of service stations, since Hurricane Harvey forced the shutdown of at least eight Texas refineries, according to AAA.

Pump prices have surged - the average for a gallon of regular gasoline rose from about $2.35 a week ago to $2.45 now, AAA reported. The price spike is more dramatic in some states such as Georgia, where the average cost per gallon of regular gas has climbed from $2.22 a week ago to $2.39 now.

In Tennessee, average gas prices have risen 12 cents statewide from last week, from $2.13 for a gallon of regular to $2.25.
