DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Effective Until 11 AM

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 11 AM for nearly every county in West Michigan save for Berrien, Cass, St. Joe, and Branch counties.  Recent, heavy rainfall, and light winds are the perfect combination for fog production.  Visibilities may be as low as 1/4 mile or lower; that's enough to drastically change how you drive.  Please keep it safe this morning and travel slower, if you have to.  Additional stopping distance isn't a bad idea either.  Stay with wwmt.com for the latest weather updates!

Clinical trial tests new surgical procedure story image
LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Doctors are testing out a new, less invasive surgery that can actually clear blocked arteries and prevent patients from having strokes

More than 300,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed every year with blockages in the cartoid arteries.

So far, about 40 people have taken part in the clinical trial.

If all goes well, doctors hope to also perform the procedure on low risk patients.

Teresa Garcia visited the first hospital on the west coast to perform the procedure in a clinical trial.
