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!

LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - People in Los Angeles are concerned that meningitis may be spreading through their community.

People in West Hollywood are lining up for the meningitis vaccine after a 33-year-old gay man died last week.

Health officials are investigating to see if there's a link to an outbreak of bacterial meningitis among gay men in New York City where 22 people have gotten sick and 7 have died since 2010.

Health officials are also reaching out to gay groups to raise awareness.

They say they don't want to cause any unnecessary panic, but they're taking an active response to make sure it doesn't become a bigger problem.

Bacterial meningitis can spread through close contact, including kissing, sharing food, and sex.

It can be treated with antibiotics if it's discovered early enough.
