More than a dozen cases of Legionaires Disease have turned up this year in La Porte County.

It's a virus that causes pneumonia....and sometimes leads to death.

La Porte County Commissioner Vidya Kora is a medical doctor.

He says county government has reached out to state and federal health officials.

Officials here want to find out if the number of cases this year is high....and if anything can be done

to keep others from getting it......

Several of the cases involved county employees.

They worked at the county office building at State and Michigan streets across from the

county complex.
