it does mean some expensive repairs. 8,000 people on the list of those who may have been exposed to legionnaires disease at a hotel in the loop. good evening, i'm lourdes duarte. i'm tom negovan. our top story seen around the country tonight on wgn america: three confirmed cases tonight of the sometimes fatal pneumonia. wgn's sean lewis is at the marriott chicago on west adams. this is not a worst case scenario but there is still cause for concern. three confirmed cases of legionnaires' disease traced to this hotel. the chicago apartment of public health notified hotel management one week ago about the cases
reported to them. they ordered the hotel to drain and shut down the pool and hot tub which are located on the lower level of the hotel near the spot. they also drink the water fountain in the lobby. the hotel said more than 8500 guests who stayed here between july 14th and august 15th, a one month time period have been notified by mail about the outbreak of legionnaires' disease. current tests are being notified when they check in and given the option to stay at a different hotel downtown also hotel staff who worked in that timeframe between mid july and last week. also last week the department of health took samples from three areas believed to be the source which causes of the bacteria
which causes legionnaire's. in order to get the bacteria it takes 10 days to culture it. we will get the official results on the 26th but based on the knowledge base and past practices they believe that could be one of the areas. we are pleased that they called us today and said there was no health risk or concern and all the guests and our associates are safe. legionnaires' disease is a form of pneumonia and as you might guess the victims are the same. the symptoms are the same. high fever and chills muscle aches sometimes not show up. it takes between today's and 10 days for symptoms to appear. if you stayed here or someone you know state here within the last month and you are experiencing those symptoms you should see a doctor and contact
the chicago department of public health. cases of the west nile virus are being monitored very closely after the death of a suburban mayor. wgn's randi belisomo takes a closer look at who is likely to be at risk for more severe health issues when the virus strikes. the mayor of evergreen park tested positive for west nile virus. he anticipates a full recovery but another suburban mayor of lombard died as a result but he was undergoing cancer treatment. of the 26 cases of west nile virus reported statewide most are in cook county. 700 cases across the country. the highest number of reported since west nile was detected in 1999. we are in the
early part of the season. this year at the cases or the positive mesquita samples started to wear three rigs earlier than last year. mesquite does transmit the virus. the factors behind the virus outbreak are complicated but the high temperatures and decrease the community in the animals that carry it. by having a logger warmer season and a lot of warm weather season that allows pesky does to replicate faster and speeds up their life cycle. it results in more mesquita spirit stay away from mosquitos and from where they thrive. water which is organically fall water that you would not want to stick your television or drink. that is a heaven to them. all of those catch basins lining the streets the storm sewers, they are the sorts of sites you will find mosquito is developing. the
water within the leaf clogged gutters of your house. there is no treatment right now where fortunately. this infectious disease specialist says 80 percent of those who contract the virus have no symptoms but the elderly and chronically ill are vulnerable. there is a set of patients that will develop mild illness fever and like a virus feeling. and a smaller set will develop and infection involving the nervous system, the brain and they can become comatose. the illinois department of public health is encouraging people to reduce repel add report. reduce exposure to miss give us, wear mosquito repellent, and if you see pools of stagnant water or

"you never want to give someone your home address. you never want to meet them in an area thats not well traveled and like in this case he keeps moving the meeting later and later and later, that too could be a red flag." thomas is charged with armed robbery. the victim was treated and released from evanston northshore hospital. also at the courthouse in joliet:

that ross sex would not cause things but a sexual assault would, and i always thought that was rough sex. she said what she was paid to say. the only person who killed her was drew peterson . it was not ... hot also a man who sensed he was offered $25,000 by drew peterson to have his wife taking care of. is a long trial and the judge has striven to do what is right in this case and i believe that was a strong thrilling by him. the judges try to pick up the pace of the trial and he added this monday to the calendar and said there could be a saturday in the future as well prosecutors said they hope to wrest the case by friday.
also at the courthouse in joliet: the second day of the christopher vaughn murder trial. his father-in-law and two sisters-in-law took the stand today. vaughn is accused of shooting his wife and three children in june 2007. their bodies were found in the family vehicle parked near i-55 on a narrow path near a cellphone tower. vaughn's father-in-law said he was once troubled over how he left for work one morning stone-faced -- didn't say a word to anyone. one of his sisters- in-law said she talked to kimberly vaughn at least twice before her death, and she seemed fine. you may have a front-row seat to the next big trial in cook county... right from your living room. cook county chief judge timothy evans said today he supports putting cameras and recorders in courtrooms for civil and criminal trials. he said he hopes a pilot project will be up-and-rolling by the end of the year. he also said he may reassign judges who are against televising their proceedings. i think the public deserves to see what ever you are

[ announcer ] we are insurance. ♪ we are farmers bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum ♪ republican senate candidate todd akin of missouri did not withdraw from the race by today's deadline after his controversial remark about what he called "legitimate rape." akin appeared encouraged by support from top anti-abortion leaders and a new poll which shows him having a slim lead over his opponent, incumbent democratic senator claire
