(Undated) -- A potentially deadly brain-eating amoeba is turning up in water samples in Louisiana. Officials are warning people in the towns of Reserve, Garyville and Mount Airy not to allow water to get inside their noses when swimming because it could transfer the amoeba to the brain. Officials insist the water is safe to drink and still use normally otherwise. The positive test was found in an area that serves nearly 13-thousand homes and businesses.
