There are scores of water logged homes in Yates County following this weeks flooding. Mold can grow quickly in flood soaked houses and cause health issues. Yates County Public Health Director Deb Minor says eliminate standing water as soon as possible and open up the windows.
It's a good idea to be sure your tetanus shots are up to date.
Anything that has come into contact with flood waters should be thoroughly scrubbed down with water and bleach.
