New Orleans, La – Louisiana gets a new round of warnings to guard against mosquito bites. State health officials now link 12 deaths to the West Nile Virus, including one in New Orleans.
“I find it a hazard in the neighborhood,” said neighbor Kathleen Gaffney.
Neighbors who live on Mercedes Blvd. in Algiers complain a pool in a neighbors backyard is a breeding ground for mosquitos. One nearby resident believes no one has touched the pool since Katrina.
