Deadly Yellow Fever Mosquito In Menlo Park, San Francisco, USA

Yellow Fever Mosquito, or aedes egypti.

A deadly mosquito that hasn’t been widely seen in the Bay Area since the 70s has been detected in San Mateo County.

It’s called aedes aegypti and it was found in January at the Holy Cross cemetery in Menlo Park.

It’s the mosquito that spreads yellow fever, chicken fever, the dengue fever and other diseases. Officials call it “one of the worst most effective vectors of disease around the world.”

The mosquito is tiny and its bite is hardly noticeable. Unlike other mosquitos, it bites during the day.

Another yellow fever mosquito was also discovered in Menlo Park last August.

Officials are asking homeowners in the area to check their yards for containers of standing water, including birth baths, so it can be eradicated quickly.

PLANE HEADED TO SC CRASHES, KILLS 2 – USA

Plane Crash Alert

Officials say two people have been killed in a plane crash near Riverside in eastern Kanawha County.

The Charleston Gazette reports that the small plane was on its way from Akron, Ohio, to Spartanburg, S.C., when it crashed.

The pilot of the Piper PA-32 had reportedly asked for help navigating around bad weather.

The newspaper said that West Virginia State Police responding to the crash needed about two hours to find the site with a helicopter.

A man who answered the telephone at the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the plane’s two occupants were dead but did not immediately have any additional information.
