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!

Explosion reported at airport in northwest China

Updated: Tuesday, July 15, 2014

BEIJING (AP) - An explosion has occurred in the parking lot of an airport in China's northwest but there was no immediate word of any injuries.

The newspaper China Youth Daily said the explosion occurred at 1:45 p.m. in a trash bin in a parking structure at the airport in Xining, capital of Qinghai province. It said police sealed off the area.

A woman who answered the phone at Xining police headquarters confirmed an explosion occurred but refused to say whether there were any injuries.

Chinese authorities have stepped up security in airports and train stations following a series of violent attacks blamed on Muslim extremists.

Photos on the China Youth Daily website showed police at the airport but no signs of damage.
