Houston is on the cusp of a potential second disaster. And it has everything to do with what was wrecked by Hurricane Harvey: the detritus of waterlogged lives. In all those curbside piles of ruined belongings and broken furniture, in any crevice where water can gather, so, too, gather mosquitoes.
"Houston's Next Big Storm: Mosquitoes" is from the September 07, 2017 To Your Health section of The Washington Post. It was written by Amy Ellis Nutt and narrated by Sam Scholl.
