    WASHINGTON - Authorities say there are now 38 confirmed cases of measles in the Pacific Northwest outbreak.

    The confirmed cases are mostly centered in the southwest of Washington state.

    These numbers include two people who traveled to Hawaii and another who went to Bend, Oregon.

    Clark County Public Health said in a statement Wednesday there are also 13 suspected cases and of those confirmed most of the patients are under age 10.

    Thirty-four of the confirmed were not immunized against the disease.

    Last week Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency due to the outbreak, which authorities have said could last for months.
