“After a series of 30-plus inches rain on Mt. Airy for the last two months. The federal agency that oversees disaster relief is concerned of a mold outbreak after the water recedes. FEMA raised a concern about an urgent mold inspection be done as soon as possible, but it seems like the medical community is overstating the proposition.”

“Mold exposure can cause series of allergic reaction from mild, such as sneezing or worst like breathing disorder or lung failure. It can be more fatal on infants, children, elderly people and pregnant woman and especially those with pre-existing respiratory problems.”

“But Albert Rohr, an allergist in the Main Line Health system said that "For the average person who's not allergic to mold, most mold species are not dangerous," "For the average person who's not allergic to mold, most mold species are not dangerous,". But it’s not a risk worth taking. Prevention is always better than cure.”

“After watching Irene, Lee, and a series of nameless rainfalls-turned floods overtake records and local storm water safeguards, Mt. Airy residents can be forgiven for hoping the worst is over.”

“But according to FEMA, that might not be the case.”

“According to the federal agency that oversees disaster relief, when the water recedes it often leaves even nastier problem lurking behind: mold.”

“The legacy of the 30-plus inches of rain the area received in the last two months, mold exposure can trigger a multitude of health problems, including:”

•   Respiratory events (such as wheezing and asthma attacks)
•   Burning or watery eyes
•   Nose or throat irritations
•   Skin irritations such as rashes or hives
•   Nervous system disorders such as headaches, memory loss and mood changes
“These symptoms can be especially pronounced in infants, children, and the elderly; people with compromised immune systems; pregnant women; and those with preexisting respiratory conditions.”

“But despite the concerns raised by FEMA and others, some in the medical community maintain that the mold threat is overstated. Albert Rohr, an allergist in the Main Line Health system, is among them.”

"For the average person who's not allergic to mold, most mold species are not dangerous," Rohr said. "It doesn't smell great, but it's not really dangerous to their health."
