Isaac starts to move north up the Mississippi; Our weather dries out

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)-Isaac continues to push through Louisiana, dumping heavy, flooding rain through several states up the Mississippi River. 
The center of Isaac is not headed towards our viewing area soon, in fact we’re going to start to dry out beginning today. A cold front will slide south through the area, with high pressure allowing sunshine to return for the weekend. 

By early next week, leftover moisture from the storm could head our way bringing some widely scattered thunderstorms for Monday and Tuesday.

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A second person has died from the West Nile virus in North Carolina.

Officials with the Cabarrus County Health Alliance confirmed Wednesday a 77-year-old woman died after complications from West Nile virus several days ago.

A Wayne County man died from the illness on Aug. 14.

State health officials say three other cases have been reported Forsyth, Mecklenburg and Scotland counties.

Health officials recommend eliminating standing water in places like flower pots, discarded containers, gutters and kiddie pools.

People also should keep window screens and panes in good condition. They also recommend people wear long sleeves, pants and socks.

Some of the symptoms of West Nile virus include fever, headache and a stiff neck.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported a 40 percent increase in cases last week.
