HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - The Cabell-Huntington Health Departments says the West Nile virus has been detected in mosquitoes in Barboursville.
 
Environmental health director Stan Mills tells The Herald-Dispatch that a pool of mosquitoes around a lake in Barboursville tested positive for the virus. He expects additional testing to find more infected mosquitoes in the coming weeks.
 
Health department director Dr. Harry Tweel says the mosquito-borne disease's symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or a body rash.
 
Earlier this month, mosquitoes infected with West Nile were detected in the Mid-Ohio Valley.
 
No human cases have been reported in West Virginia.
