The push for pumps is not a new one.

The plan died in 2008 after epa officials vetoed it because of concerns it would hurt the wetlands.

But there's a twist to senator cindy hyde-smith's latest pitch---put in temporary pumps till something more permanent can be built.

"this floodwater is trappe and it's not going anywhere for a long time unless it's pumped out."

Her letter to the president makes note that the feds directed the corps of engineers to do the same thing in previously situations.

"temporary pumps like th ones used after hurricane katrina and hurricane sandy are a short term solution that can bring some relief.

Fema and the corps of engineers have the authority and the funding to get pumps now in mississippi."

Hyde-smith says the recently approved supplemental disaster funding package is what should provide enough money to deploy temporary pumps in the "near future" warren county emergency management director john elfer is glad to see a plan gaing ground.

"any push to get any kind o pump to pump any amount of water out of there is a great thing."

Elfer notes that no one anticipated the backwater flooding to last this long and those who live in the area have been pleading for help.

"it's a huge economic impact t those folks.

It's a huge emotional toll on them.

This thing has been going on for so long now and not much national attention.

So, maybe this will get things moving in the right direction."

Stinger the dawgs are already in omaha..our sports team..they're almost there.

We catch up when your kids are sick, you want to make sure they have the best care.

Tonight we look at when you need to go to your pediatrician or make a trip to the e-r, in our health talk with baptist.

When to go to the er?

Hi.

I'm dr pam sykes, a pediatrician at baptist memorial hospital-golden triangle.

One of the most common questions i get from parents is "when do i need t take my child to the emergency room?"

We need to rember that er stands for emergency room which means it is for life or death emergencies.

This would means health concerns that cannot wait till the morning when a patient could see their regular pediatrician.

The definition of an emergency can be subdivided by age and today we will discuss recommendations for infants over 2 months old.

In a child over 2 months old the concern of fever is not significant enough to cause immediate hospitalization but still an important sign that tells us there is an infection.

So in an infant this age, should be taken to the er if: they have trouble breathing appear dehydrated suffer trauma or toxic ingestion have a seizure or have a significant change in level of consciousness.

I frequently remind my patients that er doctors are trained for life and death emergencies and are not trained for routine infant/child care.

Just as i am trained to care for children, if an adult came into my clinic for me to treat their heart attack and i did not have a phone to call 911 they would be in big trouble.

All that to say a runny nose, cough, cold, congestion, constipation, pink eye&amp;these are symptoms that are not generally life threatening and are best managed by your child's regular physician.

Stinger the msu omadawgs may already be in nebraska, but our wcbi ároad dawgsá are playing catch-up.
