4:02 pm
evaluate teachers. we're simply not asking that they be eliminated because that's in the state law. what we're asking to do is make them fairer by putting the weighting system that you use on the different measurements that evaluate a teacher more equal. >> denise: the cleveland school district released this statement saying "a significant number of items have been resolved and only a few remain. it's unfortunate, therefore, that the ctu has put their efforts towards a than resolve a few items. nonetheless, the district is making preparations to minimize the impact on our 39,000 students". so the union president, of course, says that he's hoping that the school district and union leaders head back to the bargaining table and work something out before the strike date hits. he said they're down to the nitty gritty. the toughest issues coming up at 5:00. we'll have a live report on what teachers and grandparents are
4:03 pm

4:05 pm
there. no severe thunderstorm warnings coming out of these. but let's check out the radar. first of all, out to the west, we have this thin line of showers moving through erie county approaching lorraine county. that's where the actual front is. but the bulk of the heavier showers and storms now moving east of i-77 around the canton area. dover-new philly. the only lightning we're seeing is with those storms in southern tuscarawas county. and the ones developing here in pennsylvania. but here is a switch over to county approaching youngstown. these are pretty fast moving. so not much of a flood threat here. this is a heavier shower with thunder in huntsburg and track grove. that will be moving into ashtabula county here shortly. now, when we look at the future view model, by 5:00 you can see most of the stuff is out. but we're going to keep isolated showers still perhaps a few rumbles of thunder inland here this evening mainly.
4:06 pm
the storm risk will be ending this evening. it's going to stay humid. get used to that the rest of the week. and right now we're still looking at that unsettled weekend. i'll bring you the details on that next timeout. mark. >> mark: jeff, thank you. flood waters are still affecting thousands in louisiana. thousands forced from their home. now as waters moving to the south, more areas getting ready for the flooding. >> reporter: larry lee felt helpless as he saw flood waters swallow his town. >> i kind of expected it, but i couldn't picture it. >> reporter: for days, residents knew the water was coming. in just a matter of hours, lee's mother's home flooded. his could be next. >> yes. i got a lot of friends. i have friends that drove out and lost everything. >> reporter: as the water rose, volunteers from a local college

heading to louisiana to help aid the flood victims. they left the american red cross headquarters in cleveland this morning. more volunteers from northeast ohio will be sent down later this week as the red cross response team deems necessary. an estimated 1500 workers will be on the ground to help with the recovery effort by the end of the week. one of the things those volunteers are going to have to be concerned about is the zika virus. according to a tropical medicine expert. mosquito breeding. and some of those eggs could come from zika-carrying insects. but the cdc says zika-carrying mosquitoes are tienier and therefore more likely to be swept away with the flood waters. now, in lake county, a $60,000 grant awarded to the health district there for mosquito
4:09 pm
explain why. >> reporter: workers collect samples every night and then they count those mosquitoes in the morning. the goal is to track down traces of west nile here in northeast ohio. so far this summer, lake county found one pool of mosquitoes in mentor that tested positive for the virus. now, as you likely know, west nile can cause fever, headaches and fatigue. but the good news is, workers with the mosquito-control program told me the dry summer up until recently kept mosquito counts down lower than normal. if tests come back positive, crews go to those spray. >> this year i would say it's about normal. as a matter of fact, it's even a little below normal. we would send a crew out. they would scout the area, try to find any breeding locations. we'll, of course, spray the area. night spray. >> reporter: the spray he mentioned they use is a dual action pesticide. it attracts and it kills the mosquitoes. this year lake county has a new type of trap that collects the type of mosquitoes that could potentially carry the zika
