Things to know after a hurricane:

After a hurricane has passed through an area and flooding occurs, mosquitoes will lay eggs near standing water. Mosquito populations usually increase greatly after flooding. Most of these mosquitoes are considered nuisance mosquitoes and will not spread viruses. However, some types of mosquitoes could spread viruses like Zika, dengue, or West Nile. Learn more here.

Tetanus is different from other vaccine-preventable diseases because it does not spread from person to person. The bacteria are usually found in soil, dust, and manure and enter the body through breaks in the skin — usually cuts or puncture wounds caused by contaminated objects. Learn more here.
