For many people in eastern Carolina the Swine Flu outbreak in Mexico has really hit home.
Mayra Rodriguez owns a store in Greenville. She's originally from Mexico and still has family there. She says she has been in contact with them since the outbreak of the flu. And although they live about 24 hours away from Mexico City, their city has still cancelled school and many people are wearing masks to protect themselves.
Rodriguez says it's been a scary experience for them. She says she hopes her family continues to take precautions to stay safe.
As of now the death toll in Mexico has risen to 149.
