Ebola, Staten Island Emergency Doctor, Ishmael Griffin Shares information.
The largest Liberian community outside Monrovia is in Staten Island, New York.
Concerns about Ebola have forced many in the community to cancel their trips back home, but some have left the US before the outbreak and their return sparks fear about the risk of an outbreak in New York.
Among the biggest concerns is whether the outbreak could spread to the United States after two American missionaries contracted Ebola in Liberia.
According to an infectious disease specialist with Staten Island University Hospital, it is highly unlikely.
"We aren't at risk of having an Ebola epidemic in America," said Dr. Ambreen Khalil. "Eighty to 90 percent of people die from Ebola, but it's not an American disease."
In Little Liberia, Jalloh is not alone in her concern. Many Liberian-Americans share her fears. Momo Fully, a father of four, lost his cousin to Ebola in August. He worries the disease, which has killed more than 3,000 people in West Africa, could take hold in the United States.
“People go back and forth all the time. There’s always the possibly of Ebola coming to America and spreading,” he said.
Health experts stress that despite the first Ebola diagnosis on U.S. soil, chances of an outbreak are very slim, given the far superior hospital services here.

We are going to interview Reed Timmer from the TVNWeather Network. He is a well known weather chaser that has worked with the Weather Channel and had his own tv documentery on chasing tornadoes
(written by Reed):
For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a storm chaser. Growing up in Michigan, I was obsessed with severe storms and blizzards and realized that when I got my driver's license at the age of 16, I didn't have to wait for the storms to come to me anymore. When my classmates were going to parties in high school, I would sneak out of the house at night to chase lake effect snow squalls in the Lower Michigan snow belts, always knowing that my heart was in Tornado Alley. In 1998 I moved to Norman, Oklahoma, to study meteorology at the University of Oklahoma, driven not only by a deep-rooted passion to chase tornadoes, but also to understand the science behind them.
We will discuss nothing but SEC College sports and what's going in the Southeastern part of the country. Coach Reed is a Razorback but he knows the landscape of this conference.

We'll discuss whether or not RPM made the right hire, and what lead to them picking Hornish over the others.

Crew chief changes at Front Row Motorsports will take place, effective immediately. Frankie Kerr, who was cc for the number 38 car and driver, David Gilliland.
