Health Officials Focus on Finding Cause of Vape-Related Illnesses
WESLACO - Health officials nationwide are scrambling to find the cause of all vaping related illnesses.
The number of cases continues to rise but no one thing identified as the culprit.
The CDC is focusing in on THC vaping products but officials say they aren't sure yet if the problem is THC or the fillers to make the liquid thicker.

One of the six is confirmed to be in Hidalgo County
