MIAMI VALLEY — While some parts of the country are preparing for an increased tick population this summer, the Miami Valley may be one of the lucky areas that doesn’t see the same impact.
Our team of Storm Center 7 meteorologists say the multiple weeks of freezing weather this year will help cut down on the local tick population. Even though locally we may see less ticks than other areas, public health officials still suggest caution when walking outdoors during tick season, which begins in May.
Jeff Webb, environmental health director at Greene County Public Health Department, says, “ You generally pick up ticks from being in tall grassy areas.” He also stated, If you stick to sidewalks you’re generally going to be good.
Caroline Reinwald will have more information about the upcoming tick season, including local numbers for lyme disease on News Center 7 beginning at 5 p.m.

RIVERSIDE — Update@1:12 p.m.:
Alpha Adams doesn’t show up in any recent DPD reports and has no Dayton Municipal Court or common pleas court cases.

A 46-year-old woman killed in a head-on collision in Riverside Tuesday afternoon has been identified.
Alpha Adams, of Dayton, has been identified as the driver killed in the crash on southbound Harshman Road, according to the Montgomery County Coroner's Office.
An autopsy on the Woodman Park Drive resident is scheduled for today.
OTHER LOCAL NEWS: Arrest made in drug case
Witnesses said she was driving erratically, “being aggressive and making hand gestures” just before she was involved in a head-on collision on southbound Harshman Road near Airway Road and Woodman Drive at about 3:45 p.m., Riverside police Sgt. Dave Crigler said.
Witnesses said the woman appeared to be driving erratically on Harshman, headed toward Airway, when she sideswiped a school bus, then hit a second vehicle as she continued on.
She drove left of center as she approached the intersection at Airway Road, striking another vehicle head-on, the sergeant said.
Three other people were injured in the accident that involved as many as eight vehicles, he said, and they have been taken to different hospitals.
There were no children on the school bus, Crigler said.
“We don’t exactly know what the hand gestures were,” the sergeant said.
Zeke Bowling, whose girlfriend was driving one of the vehicles struck in the incident, said she was taken to a hospital and his daughter and son were also in the girlfriend’s vehicle.
Bowling characterized the fatality was the result of a road rage incident.
Crigler said he could not confirm whether the fatality was the result of road rage.
