The State Health Department reports a second West Nile virus-related death this year. An 83-year-old woman from St. Louis County has died. Missouri has verified 28 cases of the disease, including the two deaths. Officials worry the recent rain will increase the numbers of mosquitoescarrying the disease. They say cooler weather will slow the bugs down, but it will take sustained cold weather to shut them down altogether.
