DENSE FOG ADVISORY

UNTIL 10 AM

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana just issued a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for St. Joe and Branch counties until 10 AM.  Yesterday's rainfall, light winds overnight and this morning are the near perfect recipe for fog formation.  As of this writing, fog is already dense along the MI/IN line with visibilities near or below 1/4 mile.  Remember, you can't drive as fast in fog, and sometimes your ability to see will change rapidly.

UPDATED: Pilot dies after ultralight aircraft crash story image

LOWELL, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A man dies after crashing an ultralight aircraft at a Kent County airport.

Deputies say the pilot, 67-year-old Bryan Bowker of Edgewood, N.M., crashed at Lowell City Airport just after 11:30 a.m. Sunday. They say the Bowker had traveled to Michigan to buy the craft. He was the only person onboard.

Witnesses told deputies Bowker took off and landed once successfully. When he took off a second time, they say a crosswind hit the craft, causing Bowker to crash.

A witness who lives near the airport tells Newschannel 3 the impact of the crash made his house rumble.

Deputies say that while the Federal Aviation Administration does not regulate ultralight aircraft, it has been made aware of the crash.
