DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A fourth victim has died from the flu in Dallas County this season - and it's possible the outbreak has not even peaked yet.

From the Texas Department of State Health Services, Lara Anton says the number of people who catch flu often increases after the New Year.

The latest Dallas County victim was only 34-years-old, but the county health department is not saying if there were any underlying health issues.

So far, Tarrant County has reported two flu deaths, both children or teenagers.
