There are more Zika cases in Florida that officials think came from local mosquitoes. The first place in the U.S. that's happening.

FOX's Eben Brown has more from Miami:

Ten more cases of Zika virus infection have now been identified and linked to a specific neighborhood here in Miami. This is in addition to the four cases announced last week.

It is believed that these people got sick because they were bitten by a mosquito carrying the virus. That means they did not get it while traveling outside the country or from sexual contact with someone who traveled abroad.

Florida Governor Rick Scott is now asking the Centers for Disease Control to send an emergency response team to aid state health officials in finding mosquito colonies.
