NOW, AN INTERNAL INVESTIGATION AT THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION HAS REVEALED SEVERAL SERIOUS ERRORS AT C-D-C LABS.

"I'm disappointed by what happened and frankly, I'm angry about it."

DURING A NEWS CONFERENCE TODAY, C-D-C DIRECTOR TOM FRIEDEN ADDRESSED RECENT INCIDENTS - STARTING WITH THE ANTHRAX SCARE THAT POTENTIALLY EXPOSED AT LEAST 80 C-D-C WORKERS.

"The scientists failed to follow a scientifically derived and reviewed protocol that would have assured that anthrax was inactivated and that the material was confirmed to be sterile before it ever left the lab. That should have happened and it didn't."

NONE OF THE WORKERS HAVE FALLEN ILL, BUT THAT LAB IS NOW CLOSED. IN A SEPARATE INCIDENT, WORKERS ACCIDENTALLY SENT A SAMPLE OF HIGHLY INFECTIOUS BIRD FLU TO AN OUTSIDE LAB.

FIRST ALERT 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.

STORM CHANCES FOR THE WEEKEND

Scattered showers and storms again developed on Friday, but the coverage was lower courtesy of some Saharan dust working through the area. What storms are left will diminish this evening, as temps fall into the 70s. Expect a quiet overnight, with lows in the mid 70s.

Rain and storm chances continue heading into the weekend. We'll see plenty of morning sunshine across the area, with scattered showers and storms developing in the PM hours.

The Saharan dust will be making its exit on Saturday, so coverage of storms may again be lower than usual. Highs on Saturday will be in the low 90s.

The threat for storms will continue into Sunday. Once again, expect a dry morning with partly cloudy skies and showers and storms popping up in the PM hours. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The typical July weather pattern looks to continue into next week. Monday & Tuesday will also feature PM showers and storms across the area, with highs in the low 90s.

There are some indications that by midweek some dry air may work into Southwest Florida. This would lower the rain and storm chances from Wednesday thru Friday, but likely not eliminate the threat. Temps will hold in the low 90s.

Tropical Update

It is very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the open waters of the Atlantic as we head into the weekend. With Saharan dust in the area, it will be difficult for any tropical disturbances to develop.

No major activity is expected in the tropics over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
