Suffolk County canceled its spraying of parts of Northport for West Nile virus planned for Thursday due to impending thunderstorms.
The county said Wednesday afternoon that rain is expected to interfere with aerial spraying planned Thursday for parts of Greenlawn, East Northport and Elwood. The plan was to eradicate mosquitoes that might be carrying the West Nile virus. It had intended to use an aerosol of the pesticide Scourge (resmethrin).
