Debris piles, sediment pose health risks

HOUSTON (September20, 2017)

HOUSTON - As residents work to clean out their flooded homes, they may not realize the risks that remain in their streets. Dirt and debris left behind from floodwaters may pose health hazards that many have not yet heard of.

Doctor Sandeep Duggal with Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital says the risks are plenty. 

“Those things can cause G.I. illness, skin infections, if there’s any kind of break in your skin, from moving things, there’s glass, there’s wooden pieces, moving objects," Dr. Duggal said.
