NEW YORK (1010 WINS) --- The city's Department of Health is investigating two cases of Legionnaires' Disease in the Norwood section of the Bronx.

The two cases are residents of the Tracey Towers.

The buildings' water system is being investigated, but health officials said residents may still consume the water.

A DOH spokesman said the agency and building management “are promptly alerting residents of the situation, and providing guidance on how to prevent exposure, especially for those at higher risk for disease.”
