(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — National Fuel also issued a warning for customers on Monday to keep a watchful eye on the threat of carbon monoxide, as resident enter the heart of the winter season and heating systems are maxed out.

The odorless gas can be fatal if large amounts of it are inhaled over a long period of time and can also lead to brain damage, according to Emily Ciraol of National Fuel. 

"We always see at least a few cases each year," she said. "Especially as it gets colder and people tend to turn their heating systems up. It's important to have a carbon monoxide detector. It's just as important as having a smoke detector." 

And as the  flu continues to spread across the U.S., with Gov. Andrew Cuomo declaring a public health emergency last week, the Niagara County Health Department said it is running low on supplies for those seeking inoculations. However, the county's nursing division will offer a flu vaccination clinic from 9 a.m. to npoThursday at the Trott Access Center in Niagara Falls. The cost of the vaccine is $34.
