Illinois' first West Nile virus death of the season has been reported.

The victim is an elderly resident in Logan County who became ill with West Nile virus in mid-August.

Experts say the first death occurred later than usual.

Even with these cooler temperatures, West Nile virus is a threat until the first hard freeze, so protection from mosquito bites is recommended.
