More than 40million Americans will be affected by severe weather that will barrel through the U.S. this week bringing pounding rain, thunderstorms, howling tornadoes and hail with it.

The storm will affect parts of the Plains, the Midwest and the South.

On Monday there were 110 reports of severe weather, mostly from Kansas and Nebraska, where monster tornadoes ripped through the states.

Torrential rain pounded down from the unmerciful skies in Kansas, causing flash flooding and setting a new daily record of 4.7 inches of rain in the town of Chanute on May 6. The rain was so bad several homes had to be evacuated.

Tuesday through Thursday will see damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes along with thunderstorms and heavy rain in Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

Temperatures may rise from east Texas to western Louisiana on Wednesday – which could increase the risk of tornado formation.

By Thursday the storms will slide southeast – hitting Louisiana to Tennessee with thunderstorms.

This week certain areas could see six to eight inches of rain. The intense downpour could lead to flash flooding and rapid river rising.

Widespread rainfall in this storm fall in the two to four inch range. The deluge will affect parts of the Mississippi river Valley from Oklahoma to Wisconsin, which could further worsen existing flood conditions.

Rain, rain, go away! The rain forecasts is expected to effect nearly the entire nation through Friday

Just like something out of the Bible! Nightmarish swarm of millions of locusts darken the sky over Najran, Saudi Arabia, just weeks after devastating Iran

A few weeks after Iran, swarms of locusts are currently invading southern Saudi Arabia, near Najran, darkening the skies and adding a thick layer of insects to trees. Just like something out of the Bible!

Najran, Saudi Arabia, played host to an invasion of nightmarish proportions when millions of swarming locusts descended over the weekend. On their way from Iran they first crossed Kuwait and its desert before arriving to Saudi Arabia:

Very creepy, isn’t it? Earlier this year, the United Nations warned that swarms of locusts would be bearing down on Saudi Arabia and spreading among the Red Sea thanks to unusually heavy rainfall.

The UN also called on countries in the flight path to take the necessary precautions to ensure the insects make a limited impact.

Locust swarms contain up to 80 million insects per square mile and they can extend for hundreds of square miles.

The biggest fear surrounding locusts is the amount of food they can consume in a short period of time, a “small swarm” weighing about one ton can eat the same amount of food in one day as 35,000 people.

Montana just endured one of the nation’s most exceptional cold spells on record

 

There’s a kind of cold that’s legitimately dangerous. It can causes frostbite in minutes to unexposed skin. In parts of the Lower 48 states, such extreme cold is not uncommon, for a few days to at most a week.

But over the entire month of February and even into March, such exceptional, life-threatening cold never departed parts of Montana. Temperatures averaging 20 to 30 degrees below normal gripped huge areas in the state, as well as parts of the Dakotas.

These places are normally cold but this chill was unlike anything seen in the contiguous United States in decades, for both its intensity and its duration.

The February temperature departures from normal were stunning. Several major climate locations averaged 27 to 28 degrees below normal, which were the most extreme in the Lower 48 for a full month since January 1969, according to Alaska-based climatologist Brian Brettschneider.

Great Falls, Montana, was at the heart of it. The mercury didn’t rise above zero on 11 days and dropped to zero or below on 24 nights. Only the first day of the month topped freezing. Its average February temperature finished 27.5 degrees below normal.

The punishing and unrelenting cold continued into March. On March 3, the low temperature tanked to a bone-chilling minus-32 in Great Falls. Combined with a high of minus-8, the day finished a whopping 50 degrees below normal. The city concluded its longest stretch on record below freezing on March 7.

“For February 3rd through March 4th, Great Falls, MT averaged 32.3F below normal,” Sam Lillo, a PhD student in meteorology at the University of Oklahoma, recently tweeted.

While the cold in February was remarkable for its persistence, the brutal Arctic blast to begin March delivered the most intensity. Almost two dozen official stations in Montana broke monthly records during the early-month Arctic invasion, with widespread readings in the minus-30s to minus-40s.

An all-time record state low for March of minus-46 was also likely established. Icing on a cake long frozen.

A comparison of this historic cold snap to unusual 30-day cold streaks in other parts of the country shows that in most locations, there is no historical record of cold so extreme lasting so long. Only portions of the northern and central Plains into parts of the Midwest have seen anything like it in modern history.

So what was the driver behind this abnormal cold? Turns out we can largely blame a meandering high pressure that delivered Alaska record warmth during February.

“It was a warm January and February with high pressure off the West Coast,” Erik Gustafson, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Great Falls, said in an interview. Then that high pressure shifted toward Alaska, which “allowed extremely cold air to come down the Rockies, in round after round.”

The repeated Arctic outbreaks delivered Montana “northeast winds behind fronts, and this reinforcing wind holds the cold in,” Gustafson said. Thanks to these regular intrusions, cold air was “stuck in valleys and against the mountains with no place to go.”

Although the heart of the extraordinary cold was centered in parts of Montana and adjacent Canada, impressive cold was also observed to the east in the Dakotas.

A number of places saw one of their top five coldest Februaries there, including Minot, Bowman and Williston. Fargo has now had 62 days in a row with temperatures at or below freezing through Sunday, which is eighth longest on record for that city.

While temperatures are still cold in the Northern Plains, the pattern has shifted a bit. A less extreme version of colder-than-normal weather may persist into the next week or so. Beyond that, there are signs of closer to normal or even a few days above normal later this month. (Click to Source)

March roars in like a lion with rain, snow, bitter cold

48 minutes ago

CHICAGO (AP) — A winter storm is making its way across much of the U.S., bringing rain, snow and bitter cold to some areas.

The storm was spreading from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and into the Rocky Mountains on Saturday, with rain to lower elevations and heavy snow at higher elevations. The fast-moving storm is expected to move across the Great Plains and Midwest overnight, where temperatures in the storm’s path are expected to plummet. Some areas of Kansas may get as many as 8 inches (20 centimeters) of snow.

According to the National Weather Service, wind chills in northern Illinois could drop to minus-28 (minus-33 Celsius) by Monday morning. The National Weather Service said the usual low temperature for this time of year in Chicago is 24 degrees. Michigan also is in store for a bitter-cold start to March, with temperatures 20 degrees (-6.7 Celsius) to 30 degrees (-1 Celsius) below normal forecast Sunday through Wednesday. Temperatures in the northern part of the state could be as low as minus-13 (-25 Celsius) on Sunday night into Monday morning.

Meanwhile, winter storm watches are in effect for the upper East Coast beginning on Sunday night, with heavier snow possible in some areas. (Click to Source)

Hell Hole on Earth Discovered at Fukushima

By David Cohen

 
dff-1

This article is from Greenmedinfo.com, Originally published on DrSircus.com.

Most people think they have to die to go to hell but that is not true anymore. Today, in the mainstream press, they announced the existence of a hell hole in Japan at the destroyed nuclear power station at Fukushima. We have a hot spot on our planet that has never been imagined before and in the face of it human technology is helpless.

At the levels of radiation now being found a Fukushima, a robot would be able to operate for less than two hours before it was destroyed. And Japan’s National Institute of Radiological Sciences said medical professionals had never even thought about encountering this level of radiation in their work.

The accident is enormous in its medical implications. Through future years, too long to contemplate, we will witness an epidemic of cancer as people inhale the radioactive elements, eat radioactive vegetables, rice and meat, and drink radioactive milk and teas. Year by year, decade through relentless decade, the radiation will build up yet modern medicine does not seem concerned.

New readings at Fukushima have recorded the highest radiation levels seen since the triple core meltdown that occurred in 2011. Readings inside the containment vessel of reactor no. 2 are as high as 530 Sieverts per hour, a dosage that would be fatal dozens and dozens of times over if a human were to be exposed to it. The previous high was a still very fatal rate of 73 Sieverts per hour.

The blazing radiation reading was taken near the entrance to the space just below the pressure vessel, which contains the reactor core. The highest radiation levels ever measured at Chernobyl were 300 Sieverts per hour; an incomprehensibly high dose which can kill a man almost instantly.

The new record at Fukushima of 530 Sieverts per hour is 70% higher than that of Chernobyl. The 530 Sievert reading was recorded some distance from the melted fuel, so in reality it could be 10 times higher than recorded, said Hideyuki Ban, co-director of Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center.

To put this in perspective, radiation is usually measured in thousandths of a Sievert, called millisieverts. For example, most people receive around 2.4 millisieverts per year from background radiation, or only 0.0002739726 per hour.

According to the Kyodo news agency, the institute estimates that exposure to one Sievert of radiation could lead to infertility, loss of hair and cataracts. One Sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea; 5 Sieverts would kill half those exposed to it within a month, and a single dose of 10 Sieverts would prove fatal within weeks.

How Come We Do Not Hear More about Fukushima?

It was just recently said that, “It is not every day that a U.S. president calls journalists among the most dishonest human beings on earth.” This dishonesty is displayed in its full power with nuclear power issues and specifically with Fukushima where things are so bad it is basically prohibited to talk about it openly in the press. In fact, as I was reading the essays on Yahoo about the record amount of radiation the essays disappeared off the news summary list.

Most of this radiation is being washed out to sea and it is quite quickly destroying the Pacific Ocean and much of the life in it. We have no idea how much of the radiation is escaping into the atmosphere but we do know that during the first few weeks of the nuclear accident, because of the explosions, huge amounts of radiation were released into the atmosphere and it circled around the globe especially in the northern hemisphere.

There is no way for anyone to say that having a point of output of radiation of 530 Sieverts an hour is safe or how many decades it will take a radioactive output of this magnitude to badly pollute our precious world. None of this is good news for our children. Anyone who says nuclear power is safe is lying. Anyone who says nuclear radiation is not dangerous is lying.

They Don`t Want to Say Where These Clouds are Coming From

Researchers have discovered the existence of high-altitude “radiation clouds that can expose airplane passengers to high levels of radiation. These clouds were discovered as part of the NASA-funded Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety (ARMAS) program.

It’s widely known that radiation levels are generally higher in the upper atmosphere versus on the ground, simply due to the higher levels of cosmic rays. However, when studying these levels of radiation, researchers detected small pockets where radiation levels suddenly spiked, up to double the normal level. These spikes could not be explained by normal sources of radiation like cosmic rays. Frequent flyers, and first trimester fetuses may be at greater risk due to their longer exposure times or greater vulnerability.

How Come Doctors Don`t Say More About Radiation Dangers?

Because they are among the primary users of nuclear radiation, using it for all kinds of dangerous tests. A single CT scan of the chest is equal to about 350 standard chest X-rays. They are using radiation, a cause of cancer, to try to treat cancer and that usually does not turn out too well. Because they are not honest with themselves they cannot be honest with their patients, who should be told that many of the tests they are being given by doctors expose them to more dangerous radiation.

Like global warming, vaccines and now Islamic terrorism and immigration, there is no real discussion, no real science being sported in the news so the public is left completely in the dark about radiation exposures. The people with the real power in this world insist that we will always see and define the situation as safe, no need to worry or do anything like drink lots of iodinesodium bicarbonatemagnesium and start off each day drinking a glass of ultra-pure edible clayEdible clay is one of the most basic detoxification substances. It helps make sure absorbed radioactive particles pass through instead of into us. When was the last time you remember your doctor telling you to take magnesium or any of these other substances, or even sulfur to reduce the risk that our exposureto increasing levels of radiation do not lead to cancer.

One Year Ago

RT Russian News reported,

“Deadly radiation levels of up to 9.4 Sieverts per hour have been recorded at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant – enough to kill a person in less than an hour if directly exposed, local media reports. The mortal radiation reading was taken in a small room, using a remote-controlled robot. The reading of 9.4 Sieverts (Sv) per hour was taken during the September 4-25 checks. Immediate radiation exposure around the Fukushima nuclear power following the deadly incident reached 400 millisieverts (mSv) per hour in places. One millisievert is a thousandth of a sievert, therefore the new 9.4 Sv reading is 23.5 times higher than the radiation level recorded in March, 2011.”

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says levels of radioactivity in underground tunnels have sharply risen. Tokyo Electric Power Company has detected 482,000 becquerels per liter of radioactive cesium in water samples taken from the tunnels on December 3rd. That’s 4000 times higher than data taken in December last year.

Officials revealed that about 2 Trillion becquerels of Fukushima radioactive material flowed into the ocean every month during 2013 — “Deadly strontium” releases are now more than double cesium — “Strontium gets into your bones… it changes the equation.” Strontium is a potentially lethal alkaline earth metal poses the biggest immediate concern, because, unlike cesium, it doesn’t get trapped in soil and tends to accumulate in bones of fish and animals if ingested.

Everyone wants to forget all about Fukushima

Everyone wants to forget all about Fukushima for who wants to remember their worst nightmares? The Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown disaster “is not over and will never end,” warns Dr. Helen Caldicott, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and holder of 21 honorary doctorate degrees.

It was reported by Andy Gunderson during the first year of the Fukushima meltdown that people on the west coast of the United States and Canada, Hawaii and Alaska were bearing some of the worst of the radiation and people then, and now, are not taking evasive action. Gunderson said in an exclusive interview with Chris Martenson that, “I am in touch with some scientists now who have been monitoring the air on the West Coast and in Seattle for instance, in April of 2011, the average person in Seattle breathed in 5-10 hot particles a day, depending on how active they are.” This means even if Fukushima disappeared today we should already be treating ourselves and our children for exposure.

Conclusion

Dr. Brownstein writes, “If there is enough inorganic, non-radioactive iodine in our bodies, the radioactive fallout has nowhere to bind in our bodies. It will pass through us, leaving our bodies unharmed. It is important to ensure that we have adequate iodine levels BEFORE this fallout hits.”

Everyone should be making sure that they are taking enough minerals because radioactive substances mimic their non-radioactive mineral substancesStrontium mimics calcium, for example, making it extremely dangerous to all life forms once it is absorbed. The toxic substances such as Tritium, Cesium, Plutonium and Strontium are being carried everywhere by winds, rain and ocean currents, entering the food chain through seaweed and seafood, building up high levels of toxicity in the fish – and humans – at the top end of the consumption chain.

Fukushima is Japan’s and the world’s radiation nightmare that will not go away in our lifetimes nor our children’s or grandchildren’s. The Fukushima nuclear power plant is hemorrhaging radioactive toxic waste into the ocean and though we are told not to panic, nor even to be casually concerned, the situation is dangerous and critical to future life on earth.

Death Cult Democrats say killing newborn babies the day they’re born is “good for the economy” … so what’s next, exterminating all kids with autism and senior citizens?

Sunday, February 10, 2019 by: S.D. Wells

goons-dem-2

(Natural News) Democrats are all set to raise every American citizen’s income tax above 70 percent and on upwards to 90 percent in order to pay for all the “free stuff” they’re raving about, including Medicare, college, food, and yes, day-of-birth abortions. You see, all Americans should be working hard in factories and processing plants, because the more people paying exorbitantly high income taxes, the more riches for the tyrannical Democrat-Socialist-Communist elite. Make no mistake, that’s what the late-term abortion push, fake global warming alarmism, and “no borders!” screaming is all about.

At the same time, the Death Cult Democrats want to eliminate the middle class, so that everyone is poor and desperate, literally voting for big government and the nanny police state to “rescue” them from their living nightmare. This depopulation agenda includes the mass murder of babies, forced vaccination of dissenters, and soon, the extermination of anyone who might not know exactly how to vote Democrat, like kids with autism and senile elderly.

If you’re thinking right now this has nothing to do with health, but only to do with politics, you’re dead wrong. This has everything to do with living organically, ethically, responsibly, and patriotically, as opposed to what the Death Cult Democrats would all have us “praying” for, like any food, any law enforcement, and any right to speak up against the ruling class.

Socialist dictators will wipe out all organic food and natural medicine, claiming GMOs are healthy, sustainable, and great for the economy.

Socialist dictators will confiscate all civilian guns and ban free speech.

Socialist dictators will ban all real news and promote all fake, scripted, narrative news.

Socialist dictators will tax the working class to death (literally) and keep the money, because they certainly are NOT building train tracks across the 3000-foot-deep Pacific Ocean.

Socialist dictators will increase illegal drug imports, sex trafficking, and slave labor in America.

Socialist dictators will limit all American families to one child.

Socialist dictators will put tracking devices inside all U.S. citizens.

Socialist dictators will confiscate all private land, businesses, and farms.

Socialists want your children to suffer from autism and mental health disorders so the state can confiscate them and sell them into slavery on the black market.

Communists and Nazis always propagate the same slogan – it’s “for the greater good”

Without Trump in office, we would already be living under a full Nazi-style regime. Think about it. We already see deranged organizations like Planned Parenthood funding abortions so they can steal the baby organs (pay bottom-dollar cash under the table) and use the flesh for biotechnology horrors.

We see mass sterilization going on with 9 – 12 year-old girls getting the highly toxic HPV vaccine, and one in every 50 kids becoming autistic during their first half-dozen years of life, thanks to the CDC vaccine schedule of 55 toxic jabs before age seven.

We have New York Democrats jumping up and down in fits of joy, celebrating the outright murder of live-birth babies, who could be completely healthy, but still suffocated to death, or their spinal cord severed, or getting their jugular slit with a scalpel.

We have Bill Gates admitting on video that he believes he can reduce the world’s population by a few billion people if we do a good job “with vaccines.” What kind of vaccines is he talking about? Aren’t vaccines supposed to prevent disease, not mass murder Africans and children in India?

People, you have no choice left but to vote Republican in hopes of preserving the Republic, the Constitution, organic food, natural medicine, free speech, free press, freedom of religion, freedom to run a private business, the right to own your own land, the right to keep the majority of your earned income, the right to a lawyer, judge and jury, and the right to have your vote actually count.

Tune into Preparedness.news for updates on what books, food, seeds, and weapons you should stock up on BEFORE SHTF, because then it’ll be too late. Have you seen the store shelves in Venezuela? Has anyone seen Holocaust films of the horrific medical experiments that were conducted on prisoners? That’s where America is headed under the Death Cult Democrats, should they gain complete control.

Winter storm Nadia: Heavy snow and rain trigger mandatory “must go now” evacuations, mudslides, crashes, road closures, and leave tens of thousands without power in California

Winter Storm Nadia continued to slam the Pacific Northwest and Northern California with heavy snow and rain Wednesday, causing multiple crashes and road closures, widespread flooding, travel woes, mudslides and debris flows, leaving tens of thousands without power in California.

The California city of Redding, which sees snow about once every other year, received more than a foot of new snow from Nadia, effectively shutting down the city of nearly 100,000. Roads were impassable and much of the city’s homes and businesses lost power as inches of heavy snow weighed down power lines.

We’ve been here since 2002 and we’ve had snow maybe four times, but nothing like this,” local resident Chris Belcastro told SF Gate. “Branches as big as four inches around just snapped off. It’s just a really heavy snow.

Deadly Plague could be ‘hiding in plain sight’, warn scientists

Plague ‘hiding in plain sight’, warn scientists

old-3118750__480

The bacteria that cause plague, or the Black Death, could be lying dormant in common soil and water sources, posing a serious public health risk, scientists have warned.

The finding, published in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, could explain why plague suddenly re-emerges without warning in countries such as Madagascar and even the United States.

In the middle ages the Black Death swept through Europe, killing an estimated 75 to 200 million people. It is no longer a global threat but the new research may explain its occasional outbreaks across the world.

David Markman, from Colorado State University who led the study, said that plague is endemic in many different parts of the world and its origins are still not well understood.

“The interesting and troubling part of plague, and part of the reason why there are so many unanswered questions, is that it is present in many different environments – from the jungle to the desert and everywhere in between.

“It’s difficult to find one mechanism that unites all these different locations which explains when, where and why plague breaks out when it does,” he said.

The researchers identified amoebae, bugs that live in soil and water and which are known breeding grounds for disease, as possible culprits that are protecting the plague pathogens.

The team took soil samples from the burrows of the prairie dogs of northeastern Colorado, known hosts of the plague, to test their theory.

The researchers isolated five species of amoebae and then combined them with plague bacteria to see how they would react.

Using a genetically altered strain of plague that glows bright green the scientists observed the amoebae ingesting the plague. They then saw that the plague pathogens were alive and replicating in the amoebae.

The team says their research does not mean that this process occurs naturally but is an important theory because scientists have never properly understood how plague recurs after lying dormant.

Mr Markman warned that his research had worrying implications for bioterrorism.

“Some nefarious agent or actor could easily infect an amoeba and the amoeba could be spread into the water supply or sprayed over a crop field.

“There are hundreds of other human and animal pathogens that can survive and multiply inside amoeba but throughout all humanity plague is the most deadly pathogen we have seen,” he said.

Plague is still a real threat with a particularly virulent outbreak in Madagascar killing 202 people last year. There are a handful of cases in the United States every year, with 16 cases including four deaths in 2015.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organisation, called on the international community to do more to help understand why plague outbreaks occur.

“WHO will continue to support plague preparedness, control and response, and we call on our international development partners to help us end human outbreaks.

“This will include better understanding of the wider factors that allow plague to spread, and strengthening national capacities to manage similar emergencies in the future,” he said. (Click to Source)

Worms pulled from Oregon woman’s eye in first known case of infection

Fourteen tiny worms removed in 2016 case of Thelazia gulosa, a parasitic infection spread by flies and previously seen only in cattle

An Oregon woman who had worms coming out of her eye is being called the first known human case of a parasitic infection spread by flies.

Fourteen tiny worms were removed from the left eye of the 26-year-old woman over a 20-day period in August 2016 before her symptoms dissipated. The worms were translucent and each less than half an inch long. Scientists reported the case on Monday.

The woman was diagnosed with Thelazia gulosa, a type of eye worm seen in the northern United States and southern Canada – but only in cattle. It is spread by flies that feed on eyeball lubrication.

The woman had been horseback riding in Gold Beach, Oregon, in a cattle farming area. After a week of eye irritation, she pulled a worm from her eye.

In a study published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, researchers said North Americans may be more vulnerable than previously understood to such infections.

If the worms remain in a person’s eye for a prolonged time, they can cause corneal scarring and even blindness, according to the researchers.

“Cases of eye worm parasitic infections are rare in the USA, and this case turned out to be a species of the Thelazia that had never been reported in humans,” said study lead author Richard Bradbury, who works with the CDC’s Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria.

Previous cases of eye worm infections have been reported worldwide, predominantly in Europe and Asia and in rural communities with close proximity to animals and with poor living standards, the researchers said.

Eye worms are found in a variety of animals including dogs, cats and certain wild carnivores. (Click to Source)

Flu widespread in 36 states, CDC reports

636501459882720331-122917kns-flushot-0917-4

Outbreaks of influenza are getting an early start this year in part because of cold weather gripping much of the USA and low efficacy associated with this year’s flu vaccine.

It’s still too early to say whether this winter will be a bad season for the flu, but epidemiologists in 36 states already have reported widespread influenza activity to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in data released Friday. Twenty-one of those states show a high number of cases.

“It’s just one of those years where the CDC is seeing that this strain of flu is only somewhat covered by the vaccine that was given this year,” said Jennifer Radtke, manager for infection prevention at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville. “They’re seeing that it’s anywhere from 10% to 33% effective, so any time there’s a mismatch between the vaccine and the circulating strain of the flu, you’re going to see more cases.”

Vaccine effectiveness varies from year to year though recent studies show that a flu shot typically reduces the risk of illness by 40% to 60% among the overall population when the circulating virus is matched closely to the vaccine virus, according to the CDC.

Because only a certain percentage of people with flu symptoms go to hospitals and get tested, it can be challenging to track the actual number of people affected, Radtke said. False negative results for flu tests are also common, so it’s likely the number of people with the flu is much higher.

From the start of the flu season, which begins in October and lasts until May, Arizona has reported a nearly ninefold increase in the number of cases compared with the same period last year, according to the state Department of Health Services.

“It’s not uncommon to see (flu) this time of year,” said Radtke in Knoxville. “But we’ve had cold Decembers.

Flu symptoms include fever, body aches, chills, fatigue, cough and a sore throat. The illness typically passes within a few days but can be especially dangerous to the very young, the very old, pregnant women and those with respiratory problems.

Influenza can develop into pneumonia, an infection that causes the lungs’ air sacs to become inflamed and fill with fluid.

Deaths already have occurred in some states this flu season. Among them:

• In Arizona, the state is reporting one death of a child in its latest tally; however, an otherwise healthy 20-year-old mother of two in Phoenix died Nov. 28, one day after being diagnosed, CBS News reported.

• In California, at least 10 people younger than 65 have died, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. An 11th death occurred Thursday. The state does not track flu-related deaths among those 65 and older.

• In Delaware, a 47-year-old man with underlying health problems and an 83-year-old woman have died, state health officials said.

• In North Carolina, 12 people, including a child, have died.

• In South Carolina, seven have died. All were age 65 or older.

Getting a flu shot now is still one way to combat the virus even though it can’t promise total immunity, health officials say.

More insurers fully cover the cost, and pharmacists in all states now can administer the vaccinations, according to the American Pharmacists Association trade group.

“People are able to come in to the pharmacy — especially a 24-hour pharmacy like this one where you can come in at literally any time — and be in and out usually within 15 minutes,” said Jason Lind, a Walgreens pharmacist in St. Cloud, Minn.

Also to keep the germs at bay, wash or sanitize your hands frequently, especially if you’re touching shared surfaces such as shopping carts in public places; clean faucet and toilet handles frequently at home to reduce transmission of the virus within your family; cover your mouth when coughing; stay home when you’re sick; stay away from sick people; and avoid touching your face.

It also pays to stay well rested and hydrated so if you do come in contact with a flu virus, your body is prepared to fight it off.

If you’re already feeling ill, get to a doctor as quickly as possible.

Antiviral prescription drugs such as Tamiflu can lessen the severity of influenza for people who have had flu symptoms for two days or fewer and prevent complications such as pneumonia. But they also can have side effects, so a flu shot while you’re well should be your first choice.

“It can take up to two weeks to build full immunity to the flu after you are vaccinated,” said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. “So I encourage everyone who has not yet had a flu shot to get one today before the holidays.” (Click to Source)
