News Alert!!: Needles, CA: Information regarding what caused the internet outage in Needles, California.

Residents, businesses, and even ZachNews were affected by an internet outage that happened from around 10:30pm PT on Thursday, October 29th, 2015 to around 4:00pm PT on Friday, October 30th, 2015.

According to Frontier Communications, during some routine maintenance, there was an issue that occurred that required some manual reconfiguration.

Internet service has since been restored and Frontier Communications said that there shouldn’t be an issue again.

If you are still experiencing any connection trouble, Frontier Communications suggest working with tech support at: 1 (800) 239-4430.

From the Subways in Needles, California, to the Desert Communities Federal Credit Union in Downtown Needles, California, the internet outage caused some problems with anything using or needing the internet to run.

Some residents who have Frontier Communications went down to the local Frontier Communications Office in Downtown Needles, California to find out what was wrong, but found that the local Frontier Communications Office was closed until Friday, November 6th, 2015 which upset them.

ZachNews has learned that the reason why the local Frontier Communications Office is due to a personal family emergency and is not related to the internet outage.

ZachNews was also affected by the internet outage and were unable to post news stories.

About 20 hours later, the internet was back on and ZachNews was posting news stories on a delay.

**** Safety Tips: Mosquitoes: ****

**** Here are some safety tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on protecting yourself from mosquito bites: ****

– Wear insect repellent: Yes! It is safe. When used as directed, insect repellent is the BEST way to protect yourself from mosquito bites—even children and pregnant women should protect themselves. Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer lasting protection.

– DEET: Products containing DEET include Cutter, OFF!, Skintastic.

– Picaridin (also known as KBR 3023, Bayrepel, and icaridin): Products containing picaridin include Cutter Advanced, Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus, and Autan outside the United States).

– Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) or PMD: Products containing OLE include Repel and Off! Botanicals.

– IR3535: Products containing IR3535 include Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition and SkinSmart.

** Which mosquito repellents work best?: **

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the use of products containing active ingredients which have been registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use as repellents applied to skin and clothing.

Of the products registered with the EPA, those containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection.

EPA registration means that EPA does not expect the product to cause adverse effects to human health or the environment when used according to the label.

** How often should repellent be reapplied?: **

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, repellents containing a higher percentage of the active ingredient typically provide longer-lasting protection. Regardless of what product you use, if you start to get mosquito bites, reapply the repellent according to the label instructions.

** What precautions should I follow when using repellents?: **

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, always follow the recommendations appearing on the product label. EPA recommends the following when using insect repellents:

– Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing (as directed on the product label). Do not apply repellents under your clothing.

– Never use repellents over cuts, wounds or irritated skin.

– Do not apply to eyes or mouth, and apply sparingly around ears. When using repellent sprays, do not spray directly on your face—spray on your hands first and then apply to your face.

– Do not allow children to handle or spray the product. When using on children, apply to your own hands first and then put it on the child. Avoid applying repellent to children’s hands because children frequently put their hands in their eyes and mouths.

– Use just enough repellent to cover exposed skin and/or clothing. Heavy application does not give you better or longer lasting protection.

– After returning indoors, wash treated skin with soap and water or bathe. This is particularly important when repellents are used repeatedly in a day or on consecutive days.

– If you (or your child) get a rash or other reaction from a repellent, stop using the repellent, wash the repellent off with mild soap and water, and call a local poison control center for further guidance. If you go to a doctor, it might be helpful to take the repellent with you.

** Can insect repellents be used on children?: **

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Yes. Most products can be used on children. Products containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not to be used on children under the age of three years. EPA does not recommend any additional precautions for using registered repellents on children other than those listed above.

** Can insect repellents be used by pregnant or nursing women?: **

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Yes. EPA does not recommend any additional precautions for repellent use by pregnant or nursing women.
