• 14 dead in NC, 13 in SC from flu


    NORTH CAROLINA - Health officials said flu season is early this year and that Carolinians are feeling the pain.

    It is already one of the worst flu seasons in a decade, and it is only getting worse.

    So far, 14 people have died in North Carolina, while 13 people have died in South Carolina.

    North Carlina Health Department epidemiologist Dr. Megan Davies Davies said this particular strain -- H3N2 -- is typically harder on older Americans than other strains.

    Other states are in the middle of outbreaks, including Alaska, New York and Mississippi.
