WAWA HAS ONLY BEEN IN FLORIDA FOR TWO YEARS -- OPENING ITS FIRST STORE IN ORLANDO IN 2012 --

THERE ARE NOW 43 STORES FROM ORLANDO TO TAMPA --

WITH AROUND 15-HUNDRED EMPLOYEES --

THE REST OF THEIR 650 STORES ARE IN THE NORTHEAST.

THIS IS GOING TO BE SOME MAJOR COMPETITION FOR 711 AND RACETRACK -- IF YOU ARE FROM THE NORTHEAST, YOU UNDERSTAND THE HYPE.

MOSQUITO OUTLOOK-OC-VO


IT'S A BIG STORY THAT AFFECTS ALL OF US ---

RESEARCHERS SAY IT'S BEEN A REALLY SLOW START TO THE MOSQUITO SEASON THIS YEAR.

BUT JUST WITHIN THE PAST WEEK, OFFICIALS HAVE SEEN AN INCREASE IN THE INSECTS.

HAVE YOU NOTICED?

USUALLY. BY THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, LEE COUNTY MOSQUITO CONTROL HAS BEEN SPRAYING FOR A MONTH.

BUT NBC-2 LEARNED --- OFFICIALS JUST STARTED THE AERIAL SPRAYING. Return to index of stories...


MOSQUITO OUTLOOK-SOTVO-BNR


"Very fortunate to live in Cape Coral because they spray so well very mosquitoes."

"Normally, we would have already had our planes out in June with a lot of activity going on. it kind of got postponed until July this year."

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHEN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS GOING TO BE SPRAYED NEXT, WE HAVE A LINK ON OUR WEBSITE SO YOU CAN FIND OUT - NBC-2.COM - JUST CLICK ON NEWSLINKS. Return to index of stories...


TRACKING MOSQUITOES BREAKOUT-TC MON


TO GIVE YOU A BETTER IDEA HOW THIS WORKS ---

RESEARCHERS ARE ANALYZING MOSQUITOES IN A LAB AFTER COLLECTING BUGS FROM DIFFERENT AREAS OF LEE COUNTY - IF THEY FIND MORE IN LEHIGH ACRES THAN FORT MYERS, THEY'LL SPRAY MORE IN LEHIGH. IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

BUT THIS YEAR, THERE'S AN ENTIRELY NEW PROBLEM THAT'S NOT SUCH AN EASY FIX.

THE MOSQUITO THAT CARRIES CHICKUNGUNYA AND DENGUE IS HARDER FOR RESEARCHERS TO TRACK.

IT DOES POSE A PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT.

WHAT RESEARCHERS ARE DOING NOW IS MAKING SURE OUR LOCAL MOSQUITOES AREN'T GETTING INFECTED WITH THE DISEASES FROM HUMANS WHO HAVE RECENTLY BROUGHT IT HERE FROM OVERSEAS VISITS. Return to index of stories...


STORM DRAINS-OC-VO


THIS COULD BE THE ANSWER YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR.

THE PARENTS OF TRAVIS ROW-BEE TELL NBC 2, CAPE POLICE LEFT BRUISES ON HIS BODY AND BROKE HIS LEG.

NBC-2 UNCOVERED THE DEPARTMENT HAS LAUNCHED AN INTERNAL INVESTIGATION INTO EXCESSIVE FORCE.

PARTIALLY BECAUSE OF THIS VIDEO WHICH CAPTURED THEIR SON'S ARREST ON SUSPICION OF BEING DRUNK AND HIGH.

LISTEN TO WHAT SENATOR BILL NELSON IS PROPOSING.

48:04 So I asked these obvious question.are these child proof? 48:09/ 48:22 If a child gets into that and drinks that concentration; the child is definitely ill and probably dead. 48:29

SENATOR NELSON RECENTLY INTRODUCED LEGISLATION THAT WOULD REQUIRE CHILDPROOF CAPS ON LIQUID NICOTINE USED IN E-CIGARETTES.

THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF POISON CONTROL CENTERS SAYS THIS YEAR WE ARE ON TRACK TO *DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF CALLS FOR LIQUID NICOTINE EXPOSURE IN KIDS. Return to index of stories...


NELSON E CIGS-SOTVO


48:32 If the child just spills some of this on their skin it gets absorbed. 48:38/ 51:23 Even in a congress that has so much difficulty in passing something.I think this legislation is going to pass pretty quickly! 51:31

THE NEW LEGISLATION WOULD CALL FOR RULES REQUIRING SAFER, CHILD-RESISTANT PACKAGING FOR ANY LIQUID NICOTINE SOLD TO CONSUMERS.

NELSON ALSO CO-SPONSORED A *SEPARATE BILL. WHICH WOULD PROHIBIT THE MARKETING OF E-CIGARETTES TO CHILDREN AND TEENS. Return to index of stories...

Kristi Putnam, Department of Children and Families

It's called the whale shark - a form of shark - and coming up on the TODAY show we are going to dispel some of the myths about sharks. Most often they are not the man-eating predators that so often we fear them to be. These whale sharks, though, are nearly the size of a school bus - 39 feet long. We'll have more on that right here on SharkWatch, here on TODAY."

THANK YOU PETER.
