BRAZOS COUNTY -- For the fourth time in Brazos County in less than two months, mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile.

This time at Sue Haswell Park in Bryan on the north side near William J. Bryan.

This is the first positive result in Bryan. All other positive samples have come from the A&M campus in College Station.

The city of Bryan has been notified and while there haven't been any human cases yet, Mark Johnsen with the Brazos County Health Department tells us he wouldn't be surprised if it happened.

"The possibility that we do have cases is high. Of course, it's high every year but the way this year is setting up specifically. Looking into the future we might have a couple of cases."

Johnsen says your best line of defense is to drain any standing water, wear loose-fitting clothing, avoid dusk and dawn and always wear bug spray containing deet.
