Heavy fog impacting morning commute across the East

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Most of Eastern North Carolina remains under a dense fog advisory through 9 Wednesday morning.

That heavy fog has shut down the Cherry Branch Ferry and may slow you down on the roads all throughout the East.

Take a look at screen grabs from our Live Eye 9 cameras, all taken at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday.

You may want to leave a little early for work, thanks to the thick fog we’re seeing, so we’ve got some tips for you on driving in the fog.

Always keep your headlights on. You may feel like your headlights are blinding you, but it’s important that other cars see you. If you have fog lights, use them. Don’t use your high beams. Reflecting off the fog can actually decrease your visibility. Follow the road lines with your eyes to ensure you stay in your lane. Slow down and keep your distance from other cars.

We’re already seeing some school delays thanks to this fog. Tyrrell County Schools are running on a 2 hour delay Wednesday morning. NE Regional School of Biotechnology and Agriscience in Washington County is running on a one hour fog delay.
