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.

WMU researchers awarded $200K to study fungal infection in bats

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two researchers at Western MIchigan University have been awarded more than $200,000 to study a deadly fungal infection that's killing bats.

It's called White Nose Syndrome, and was first discovered in the U.S. back in 2006.

It has since spread across the northeastern states and even right here in Michigan.

According to the National Wildlife Health Center, bat populations in affected areas have dropped by 80 percent.

It's bad news for farmers, as bats provide at least $4 billion worth of insect suppression each year.

WMU researchers are now working with a compound from shellfish that may help bats become more resistant to the deadly fungus.
