FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

WARMER TOMORROW

Clear skies and chilly temperatures are on the way tonight. Winds will continue from the northeast at 10 - 15 this evening and as temperatures drop to the lower 50's tonight, it will be another evening for a sweater or light jacket. Thursday's weather looks fine and we expect mostly sunny skies all day. Winds will gradually turn around to a more southeasterly direction and that should help us warm up to 80 degrees in the afternoon. It looks like it will not be quite as windy tomorrow; however, wind speeds will be around 10 - 15 and a little gusty during the day.

As we continue to look at a changing weekend forecast, it still looks like we will be tracking rain showers as soon as Friday evening. Skies will cloud-up during the day on Friday and showers will move in before sunset. The unsettled weather will bring showers on Saturday and, possibly, again on Sunday morning. Some of the latest computer guidance suggests that the rain may taper off by Sunday afternoon.so it's possible that the end of the weekend might turn out to be rain-free.

RELATIVES OF THE VICTIMS, SOME WITH THEIR BARE HANDS ARE WADING THROUGH THE MUCK AND DEBRIS

THE RECOVERY EFFORT COULD TAKE WEEKS OR EVEN MONTHS.

"My sister is still out there she was in a car driving by when it happened so until she's gone or the last person is gone either way i'm out there til the end."

STILL, SOME HOLD ON TO HOPE TO KEEP ON GOING.

"Keep hope, all you've got as hope."

BUT THE HORROR OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE IS TAKING ITS TOLL ON EVERYONE INVOLVED.

"Chokes up "it is very humbling and we are very grateful"

QUESTIONS PERSIST ABOUT THE RISKS THE COMMUNITY FACED. IN 2006 THERE WAS A SMALLER LANDSLIDE IN THE SAME AREA AND IN 1999 A REPORT FROM THE US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS WARNED OF A POTENTIAL FOR A LARGE CATASTROPHIC FAILURE.

COUNTY OFFICIALS SAY THEY MITIGATED THE RISKS BUT THAT THE SHEER SIZE OF THIS SLIDE WAS OVERWHELMING.

"It haunts me./ They understood that risk and i think we did what we could do, sometime large slides happen.

"It is not very far from the objects sighted by the Chinese government which is over here, and the Australian government which is over there. So this is still the most credible lead that we have."

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


WHEN IT COMES TO SUSTAINED, SEVERE PAIN- MOST PEOPLE WILL TRY ALMOST ANYTHING FOR SOME MUCH NEEDED RELIEF. NOW THERE IS A HIGH TECH ALTERNATIVE, PERFORMED IN MINUTES, THAT MAY BE A GAME-CHANGER.

DR. MARK FARMER/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

3:26 I had a lot of skepticism - a lot of the new stuff that comes out it's difficult to believe in. 4:39 But it's kind of exceeded what I would expect it to do.

ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON MARK FARMER IS NOW ONBOARD WITH USING A MEDICAL LASER TO SWIPE AWAY PAIN, STIFFNESS AND INFLAMMATION.

DR. MARK FARMER/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

:43: We've used it for treating a lot of inflammatory conditions. So people come in with tendonitis or inflammation in their Achilles tendons or acute injuries to their back, we've had really good success rates with that. Tennis elbow. 6:27: There are some studies that seem to suggest we can decrease the pain of neuropathies, which is a remarkable thing.

CHRONIC ARTHRITIS IN HIS KNEE AND SEVERAL FAILED SURGERIES LEFT STEVE PETERS IN A VIRTUAL STANDSTILL.

STEVE PETERS/UNDERWENT LASER THERAPY

RUNS:

1:12: I've gained 50 pounds for one thing because I can't walk.

SO HE WENT THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE, HOPING TO AVOID ANOTHER OPERATION. THIS CLASS 4, ROBOTIC LASER IS PROGRAMMED TO TARGET PAIN- AS IT PASSES REPEATEDLY ACROSS THE AREA, IT SERVES AS AN ANALGESIC. STEVE BECAME A BELIEVER.

STEVE PETERS/UNDERWENT LASER THERAPY

RUNS:

3:29 I said I hate to admit this but I don't have any pain, it's wonderful.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Each treatment takes under 10 minutes, some people require several rounds. The FDA approved laser use for therapy, allowing its use as an alternative to pain meds, injections and surgery.

DR. FARMER & AMY

RUNS:

12:35 It's one of those things that gives us some additional type ways to treat patients and certainly the until results we're getting are extremely good.

FOR MANY IT IS WORTH A TRY- IF IT DOESN'T ALLEVIATE SYMPTOMS ALTOGETHER PATIENTS GENERALLY REPORT A SIGNIFICANT DECREASE IN PAIN, WHICH MAY INCREASE THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

WARMER TOMORROW

Clear skies and chilly temperatures are on the way tonight. Winds will continue from the northeast at 10 - 15 this evening and as temperatures drop to the lower 50's tonight, it will be another evening for a sweater or light jacket. Thursday's weather looks fine and we expect mostly sunny skies all day. Winds will gradually turn around to a more southeasterly direction and that should help us warm up to 80 degrees in the afternoon. It looks like it will not be quite as windy tomorrow; however, wind speeds will be around 10 - 15 and a little gusty during the day.

As we continue to look at a changing weekend forecast, it still looks like we will be tracking rain showers as soon as Friday evening. Skies will cloud-up during the day on Friday and showers will move in before sunset. The unsettled weather will bring showers on Saturday and, possibly, again on Sunday morning. Some of the latest computer guidance suggests that the rain may taper off by Sunday afternoon.so it's possible that the end of the weekend might turn out to be rain-free.
