Federal officials announced Wednesday that they plan to screen international passengers for Ebola at five major U.S. airports, while hospitals around the country continue to isolate patients showing Ebola-like symptoms. At least four Baltimore-area hospitals recently segregated patients with travel histories and other possible indications of Ebola, though the virus was ruled out in each case. Other cases were suspected and ruled out at two Washington-area hospitals last week. Meanwhile, the first U.S. patient diagnosed with the virus died Wednesday in Dallas.

A Maryland man is suing British Airways over an intended flight to Spain that ended up taking him to the West Indies. In court documents, Edward Gamson said he booked a first-class flight from Washington Dulles International Airport to Granada, Spain, via London last September for him and his partner. But he said British Airways instead put the two on a flight to Grenada, an island in the Caribbean, some 4,000 miles from his intended destination. Gamson said he did not realize the error until the flight had departed London and was already over the Atlantic en route to the West Indies.

The past few days' deluge brought April 2014 within a 10th of an inch of setting a record for "April showers" in Baltimore. The rainfall tally reached 8.6 inches at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, just shy of a record of 8.7 inches in 1889. The 3.06 inches of rain that fell at the airport on Wednesday alone tied a record set in 1947. From Monday through Wednesday, more than 4 inches of rain fell at the airport and across most of the region, with locally heavier amounts, as much as 7 inches in western Howard County.
