There are now 8 suspect H1N1 flu cases in the Amarillo area.

Five children and two adults in Potter and Randall counties tested positive for influenza A... Those results are now being tested at the state level.

If the state deems the cases probable, another round of testing will determine if an H1N1 diagnosis can be made. Those results are expected sometime early next week.

The ages of the children and schools where they attend are not being released this afternoon. Amarillo ISD Superintendent Rod Schroder says he has no information that the cases are in the Amarillo district.
