MANY PEOPLE STARTED THE NEW YEAR WITH A BAD CASE OF THE FLU.

Dr. William Schaffner/Vanderbilt University Professor of Preventive Medicine

"We're in for a very substantial influenza season."

THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION REPORTS WIDESPREAD FLU ACTIVITY IN 46 STATES.

Dr. Sharon Welbel/Cook County Health and Hospitals System

"Some already have a high fever, some are scared. They are having trouble breathing. They're just not doing well."

THE BUG IS ESPECIALLY BAD IN CALIFORNIA, WITH 27-DEATHS LINKED TO THE FLU.

OFFICIALS SAY THIS FLU COULD BE AS SEVERE AS THE 2014-2015 SEASON, WHICH WAS THE MOST SEVERE IN YEARS.

Dr. William Schaffner/Vanderbilt University Professor of Preventive Medicine

"All this getting together closely over the holidays and now locked in because of the cold and the snow that will enhance the transmission of flu."

THE H-3-N-2 VIRUS IS THE MAIN STRAIN MAKING PEOPLE SICK, AND IT'S TOUGH TO FIGHT.

Dr. Sharon Welbel/Cook County Health and Hospitals System

"That strain of flu tends to change more rapidly than other strains from the time we know it's circulating to the time the vaccine is made."

TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, SOME PHARMACIES ARE DEALING WITH TEMPORARY SHORTAGES OF FLU MEDICATIONS, DUE TO DEMAND.

THE C-D-C SAYS YOU CAN HELP LIMIT THE SPREAD OF THE FLU BY.

WASHING HANDS OFTEN AND DISINFECTING SPOTS THAT ARE TOUCHED FREQUENTLY.

AND OF COURSE, OFFICIALS SAY IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO GET A FLU SHOT.

Jennifer Layden/Illinois Dept. of Public Health

"Even if it's not 100 percent effective, it still reduces the number of hospitalizations and can make the illness more mild if you do get the flu."

Dr. William Schaffner/Vanderbilt University Professor of Preventive Medicine

"It's easy, it's quick. It's still the best thing that we can do."

CA MUDSLIDE-PKG


RESCUE AFTER RESCUE, AS DEADLY MUDSLIDES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA CONTINUE TO EFFECT HUNDREDS.

MOS: Feel lucky. Thank God they came and rescued us at 4 o'clock in the morning.

AND AT ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT AND DAY, THESE SEARCH EFFORTS CONTINUE. HOMES DESTROYED THE DEBRIS CAME CRASHING DOWN THE HILLSIDE.

MOS: It sounded like a hurricane or a freight train coming through, I mean this is just, I can't quite believe it. Is that a house behind us, was that a house?

EVEN OPRAH'S HOUSE AFFECTED BUT SHE SAYS IT PALES IN COMPARISON TO HER NEIGHBOR'S MONTECITO HOME SEEN IN THIS VIDEO HERE.

Oprah Winfrey: There used to be a fence right here, neighbor's house, devastated.

IT WAS EARLY TUESDAY MORNING WHEN THIS ALL BEGAN. HEAVY RAIN CREATING RIVERS OF MUD.

MOS: There were cars washing down, power lines coming down, huge boulders coming down, huge trees coming down.

AND BLOCKING PARTS OF MAJOR HIGHWAYS LIKE THE U.S. 101, STILL EXPECTED TO BE CLOSED FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER DAY

ALL OF THIS IN AN AREA SCORCHED BY RECENT WILDFIRES INCLUDING THE THOMAS FIRE -- THE LARGEST IN CALIFORNIA'S RECORDED HISTORY -- STRIPPING THE LANDSCAPE OF VEGETATION THAT WOULD NORMALLY MAKE IT HARDER FOR MUDSLIDES TO HAPPEN.

THOUSANDS WERE FORCED TO EVACUATE AHEAD OF THE STORM INCLUDING IN PLACES BELOW AREAS TORCHED BY THE FIRES BUT SOME STAYED, AND SOME WHO WERE NOT IN MANDATORY EVACUATION ZONES STILL HAD HOMES DESTROYED.

MOS: I'm stunned, absolutely stunned.

RECOVERY EFFORTS CONTINUE AS THE DAMAGE SPANS FOR MILES ALONG THE CALIFORNIA COASTLINE

GOOD REASON FOR SLAVERY ASSIGNMENT-PKG


nats

FOURTH GRADE STUDENTS AT 'OUR REDEEMER LUTHERAN SCHOOL" RECEIVED A GROUP ASSIGNMENT IN ENGLISH CLASS.

THE QUESTION: "GIVE THREE 'GOOD' REASONS FOR SLAVERY AND THREE BAD REASONS."

Trameka Brown-Berry/Parent:

"It's highly offensive and insensitive. I was in shock. I couldn't believe they sent something like that home."

TRAMEKA BROWN-BERRY IS THE MOTHER OF A 9 YEAR OLD BOY IN THE CLASS.

Trameka Brown-Berry/Parent:

"Not only was my son in an awful position but the students who weren't black because it's that sort of mentality of not being able to see from another's perspective and only seeing your lens -- that's what dangerous. That's what keeps racism going.

THE SCHOOL'S PRINCIPAL DID NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS ON CAMERA. BUT ADMITS THE ASSIGNMENT WAS OUT OF LINE.

HE WROTE IN A LETTER TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS: "THE PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT WAS NOT, IN ANY WAY, TO HAVE STUDENTS ARGUE THAT ANY SLAVERY IS ACCEPTABLE."

THE PRINCIPAL INSISTS THE ASSIGNMENT IS NO LONGER PART OF THE CURRICULUM. SOMETHING HE SAYS WAS INTENDED TO SPARK DEBATE IN CLASS.

Andrea Michel/Safe Place Meeting Group:

"And for it to be a Christian school, they could have said something like, 'What are three good things we can do to prevent slavery from happening?"

THE PRINCIPAL IS VOWING TO DO A BETTER JOB OF COMMUNICATION. LETTING PARENTS KNOW OF SENSITIVE SUBJECTS BEING DISCUSSED IN CLASS *BEFORE PRESENTING IT TO STUDENTS.

THE MOM WHO SPREAD HER SON'S ASSIGNMENT ON-LINE NOW WANTS THIS TO BE A LESSON FOR EVERYONE.
