Man traveling to U.S. from Liberia dies from Lassa fever: CDC
A man who traveled from Liberia died in New Jersey over the weekend from Lassa fever, U.S. health officials said, adding that authorities are looking for people who had contact with him although the risk of infection is extremely low. Lassa, a viral disease common in West Africa, is far less fatal and less contagious than the deadly Ebola virus that has raised global health concerns amid a large outbreak, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The health agency said the man traveled on May 17 from Liberia to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York with a stop in Morocco, and reported no symptoms and had no fever when he arrived in the United States.
By Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Monday likened the ferocity of flash flooding that killed at least three people to a tsunami, and authorities said a dam had given way in a state park. Abbott declared states of disaster in 24 counties and flew over the area south of Austin to assess the damage caused by tornadoes, heavy rainfall, thunderstorms and flooding that forced evacuations and rooftop rescues and left thousands of residents without electricity. "This is the biggest flood this area of Texas has ever seen," Abbott said.
