With the return of rain to the High Plains many are concerned with a heightened risk of West Nile.

The city is responding by spraying more as the summer winds down and fall begins.

There have been 58 deaths in Texas but none locally.  There have been cases of people contracting the virus here.

Prevention is key.  Mow and weed regularly, keep storm drains clear and turn off sprinklers after rain to prevent standing water.

Mosquitoes are drawn to standing water and thick vegetation, and there’s more of that here this year than last thanks to  rain.
