Mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus have been identified in Miami Beach, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said Thursday.

The three mosquito samples that tested positive were from the area in Miami Beach that was previously identified as an area of local transmission.

"This is disappointing but not surprising," said Adam Putnam, the Florida commissioner of agriculture.
