So far, potential outbreaks have been avoided. The city health department had administered 7,800 tetanus shots to residents with wounds who trudged through flood waters contaminated with sewage.

Two more cases of spinal meningitis have been confirmed in suburban Houston, bringing to at least 18 the number of cases in the area since Oct. 9, health officials said Monday. Two people have died of the disease this month. The meningitis outbreak has added to concerns raised late last year about Houston's potential for epidemic as the city with the lowest vaccination rate in the nation. Officials say the city is already vulnerable to disease because of its role as a major port and airline hub.
