DENSE FOG ADVISORY

UNTIL 10 AM

The National Weather Service issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY for all of West Michigan until 10 AM.  Many reports of dense fog already exist, and your visibility may become worse before noticeable improvements.  Recent rainfall, high moisture levels, especially near the ground, and light winds all combine to create fog.  Slowing down and increasing your stopping distance are a few ways to increase your safety while driving.

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police in Battle Creek are warning residents of a driveway sealing scam.

The incidents are taking place in areas where road work is being done.

Police say two men in an older red pickup have been approaching homeowners, offering to seal or resurface their driveways. They say the men attempt to charge $3,500 after the resurfacing.

If homeowners balk at the price they will take any amount of money.

Investigators say that the men have also promised to return the next day but never do.

Officers say this isn't a new scam, it has happened in the area before.

Investigators say that a woman was taken for $1,800 in the scam Monday.
