Hantavirus on Navaho Reervation

About a year or so ago, there was a break of a disease on the Navaho
reservation that was quite concerning.  The last I heard, it was 
thought to be a hantavirus which I believe is serologically closest to
a bunyavirus (such as oropouche).

Does anyone have any further information on this?  Was a virus
definitively isolated?  What were the symptoms?  Was it hemmorhagic?

Anyone know much about hantaviruses (or bunyaviruses)?
