DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 10 AM

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for St. Joe and Branch counties until 10 AM.  Dense fog has already been observed in many cities in West Michigan including Kalamazoo.  The ADVISORY may be expanded to include more counties.  Burning off fog this time of year is tough thanks to a low sun angle.  Fog may linger in some locations until midday.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Food and Drug Administration is forcing the makers of Ambien and several other sleeping pills to lower the dosage of their drugs.

That's because studies have found that the drugs can stay in people's system in the morning, long enough to interfere with driving and increase the risk of car crashes.

The FDA is ordering drug makers to cut the ingredient Zolpidem in half for women, who tend to process the drug more slowly.

It's also recommending lower doses for men, although that's just a suggestion.
